Building plan approvals/permits must be obtained from the Building Department for all residential and commercial construction, renovation, alteration, and demolition projects. A permit is your formal permission to begin work and entitles the permit holder to all required inspections. Inspections help assure property owners that work is done properly and in accordance with all applicable codes and standards. Permits are to be obtained by the individual performing the work, and all fees must be paid prior to the start of work.

A list of applications and forms are available below for your convenience. Contact the Building Department at 440-356-4405 or via e-mail if you are uncertain which application needs to be completed for the work you are undertaking.
