When do I need to get a building permit?

A building permit is required to:

  1. construct, reconstruct, alter, repair, remove or demolish a building or structure;
  2. change the use or occupancy of a building or structure;
  3. or install or alter any equipment for which provision is made or the installation of which is regulated by the State Building Code.

Certain accessory structures, fences 6 feet in height or less, greenhouses and ordinary repairs may not require a permit.  Please consult with the Code Administration department with any questions.
