The Building Department reviews plans and issues permits for the following types of construction:

  • Single and multi-family residences and additions
  • Plumbing installations, septic systems
  • Commercial buildings
  • Blasting and demolition activities
  • Signs, swimming pools, sheds, decks
  • New constructions, alterations, repair, renovations, reconstruction, building relocation, and changes in occupancy

Each of these activities requires submission of an application, fee, appropriate plans and issuance of a permit prior to any construction. During construction, periodic inspections are required to ensure compliance with the recently adopted family of New York State Building Codes as well as local zoning regulation.

In addition, the Building Department provides assistance to the City's Zoning Board of Appeals and Design Review Commission as necessary.
