Building & Codes


The Building and Codes Department is responsible for issuing various types of building permits as well as coordinating meetings of the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals.

The Building and Codes Department conducts inspections on commercial and residential construction projects and manages the city's code enforcement efforts, such as property maintenance and cleanliness of premises.

We serve as a resource to contractors, developers and citizens and provide assistance when needed in the areas of construction and code enforcement.
