Residential Permits For Accessory Structure.

Before beginning construction, (including addition, exterior alteration, reconstruction, or relocation) of any building or accessory structure on a residential property, a Zoning Certificate (permit) must be obtained.  There is a $30.00 application fee for each permit. (see "New Construction Permits"  below for construction of new homes.)

Permits are typically issued within a week after you apply.  Your application must be filled out completely; incomplete applications will not be processed.  Drawings are always helpful and may be required for certain structures.  Call 937-237-5815 to inquire about the need for drawings of your project.
