NOTICE of BUILDING DEPARTMENT CHANGES
Effective September 9, 2019, our Building Department vendor, Associated Governmental Services, Inc (AGS) has been replaced by a new vendor, SafeBuilt.
SafeBuilt forms consolidate residential/commercial, new build/remodel/demo applications. Please use the new forms and discard any forms you may have that reference AGS.
The first step in obtaining a building permit for new structures of any type is to complete a Zoning Permit Application and Overview Drawing. SafeBuilt will verify the building placements meet the requirements of our zoning ordinance. If it does not, you will be provided with guidance and options.
