The Construction Division is responsible for enforcement of the Uniform Construction Code (UCC).
Permits are required for most construction work and mechanical replacements. It is always best to consult with the Construction Division staff to verify if permits are required for any project you wish to undertake.
In order to issue various permits, there are many instances where the Construction Division must interact with other departments within the city. Some of those departments may include the Board of Health, Engineering, Planning and Zoning, Flood Plain Management and various Historic Commissions. It may be necessary for the application to obtain the approval of another department or division before a construction permit can be issued. The Construction Division staff is available to help guide the applicant through the process.
