Residential Permits

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.

Temporary Restaurant Permit

In an effort to help The City of Huber Heights’ businesses recover from the mandated shutdowns and social distancing requirements, the City will allow a new temporary onsite outdoor seating permit which will allow for a portion of their already approved seating to be moved outdoors. Due to the social distancing requirements of the governor’s executive order, the City understands that some restaurant establishments will seek alternatives to their indoor and outdoor configurations by extending operations to new outdoor areas including sidewalks, parking lots, etc.

To ensure that the above social distancing requirements are met while encouraging restaurant establishments to resume operations, the City is providing flexible outdoor operations allowances where they may not be permitted by City Code otherwise.  Click here to view the plan and application.
