BUILDING PERMITS

Building Permit

In keeping up with the progress of downtown, many of our local residents and business owners have completed projects of their own to improve their quality of living and, in some cases, improve the value of their property. Do you ever wonder what the banging, hammering and sawing is all about during the normal construction season? Below is a list of projects in our city that required permits from our Building Safety Division. This list will give you an idea of what your neighbors are doing to improve their properties. If you are planning a project for spring or summer and are not sure if your project requires a permit, call the Building Safety Division at 269-683-2374 and ask Executive Assistant Diane Powers. She will be able to help you determine whether or not a permit is needed and give you some pointers on how to choose the best contractor (if needed) for your project.
