Will I need a building permit?
When you construct a new building, add to an existing building, alter the interior, make repairs, or otherwise rehabilitate a structure, you will need a permit.

A permit is also required for such items as installing a fence, swimming pool, or dock, removing a tree, installing a driveway, demolition of a structure, etc.

Before starting any project, discuss permit requirements with the Planning and Zoning staff located in City Hall. They can be contacted via phone at 912-472-5030.
