The Building Department reviews plans, issues permits and provides inspections for the following types of construction:
Changes in occupancy
Single and multi-family residences and additions
Swimming pools, sheds, decks
Each of these activities requires submission of an application, fee, appropriate plans and issuance of a permit prior to any construction. During construction, periodic inspections are required to ensure compliance with the recently adopted family of New York State Building Codes as well as local zoning regulation.
In addition, the Building Department provides assistance to the town's Zoning Board of Appeals and Design Review Commission as necessary.
