Permits and Inspections

Processes and Protocol during the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Community Development Department continues to provide services including building permit processing, plan review, and permit issuance as well as in-person inspections with restrictions in place. In an effort to exercise flexibility during this time and to take measures to keep Village inspectors, contractors, and residents as safe as possible, the Village has developed temporary protocols for permit application and processing and inspection scheduling.

This situation is constantly evolving and Village services and protocols are subject to change at any time.
