Building Permits

Notice Regarding Video Inspections:

Due to the restrictions from COVID-19, we have recently started doing video inspections for building inspections in occupied homes.  However, due to the additional time required to perform these inspections and the resulting backlog of inspection requests; we will not be able to guarantee a next business day inspection.  An Inspector will contact you to schedule a specific time for the inspection after your request is entered in our video inspection request log.  Please be patient as we work to catch up with the growing list of video inspection requests.

Online Permit Application


Until further notice, the Town will only accept online building permit applications effective March 19, 2020.  Hard copy paper building permits will no longer be accepted until further notice.

In addition to accepting applications for project permits such as re-roofing, siding, windows, furnace, etc., the Town will now be accepting new home, commercial and industrial permits online.  We appreciate your patience as we roll out this new service to provide safety and convenience to our customers.

Please indicate in the email if you would like the ability to apply and pay for permits online.  A personalized login will be created and instructions on how you can access to the Community Core system will be emailed to you.
