What do I need to apply for a building permit?
The first thing to do is check with our office to see if the land is properly zoned, and what, if any restrictions apply, and/or if there is any floodplain on the property. If you are wanting to build in a floodplain, there are extra regulations that apply. If the land is properly zoned, you next need to contact the County Sanitarian to determine what type of sanitary system will be required. You must obtain an environmental health permit before a building permit can be issued.

If you will be needing a new entrance onto the property, you must contact the County Engineer's Office for approval. If you have any questions, please contact Planning and Zoning.
