Building Department Application Forms

All applications and plans will be checked for completeness, including code and zoning compliance.  


Building permit applications for projects requiring Land Use Board review will only be accepted after the Notice of Decision is issued with an approval.

Residential permit applications must now include a completed Zoning Compliance Chart.

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.
