Contact us if you need help on:
- Building permit applications (construct, enlarge, alter, repair, 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, the installation of which is regulated by the Building Code).

NOTE: Many projects requiring a Building Permit also require other permits such as a zoning permit from the Town Zoning Enforcement Officer and various approvals or permits from the Northeast District Department of Health or other State or Federal Agencies or Departments prior to the issuance of a Building Permit. It is the applicant’s responsibility to manage their project and all applicable applications and permits.
