Building Permits
Commercial Building Permits
Commercial projects tend to be complicated and often require several types of plans and permits.  If you are not a design professional, you may need to contact a building inspector to discuss your project. 

You may refer to the Plan Review Application for plan submittal information/requirements.  The checklist of required submittal information and a fee schedule for the plan review fees are included with this form.  Plan Review Fees in the form of cash/check (credit/debit cards are not accepted) are paid at the time of submittal.

The Building Permit Application (long form) is typically submitted at the same time as the Plan Review Application.  There is generally a "10 working day or less" delay in receiving the call that your permit is ready to be picked up, signed, and paid for.

Residential Building Permits
Building codes regulate almost every residential building project a property owner undertakes and most projects require a building permit.

A homeowner who resides at the premises or a general contractor certified with the State of Wisconsin and representing the owner may take out a building permit. When a permit is issued, there will be one or more required inspections. Final inspections are made of all permits.

Refer to the Building Handouts for information on many common permits for one or two family residential properties, such as additions and remodelling projects, basement remodelling, decks, fences, garages, swimming pools and other projects. Contact a building inspector for questions regarding building permits for commercial properties
