The Building Official issues building permits and conducts building inspections. A permit is required for any owner or authorized agent (contractor) who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, renovate, move, demolish or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system.
Building & Zoning staff support the city’s mission by administering the city’s ordinances, including:
Subdivision and Development Regulations
Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Ordinance
Land Use Ordinance
Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance
Nuisance Control Ordinance
Property Maintenance Ordinance
Additional services include maintaining zoning records and Subdivision Plats, issuing addresses, rezoning of property, LDA permits, Development Plan review, and Encroachment permits.
Building & Zoning staff are available to meet with applicants to discuss rezoning and development plans. Please contact us for a pre-application meeting where we will assemble relevant department heads to share information on applicable regulations and provide feedback on your proposal.
