Letter to Residents from Construction Dept: Need for Construction Permits

When moving into a new home, we all want to make ours a safe haven for our families.

Some of the changes we may consider require a Construction Permit.

Please contact the Construction Department to discuss your plans and ideas, and we’ll tell you whether a Construction Permit is required.
