Mission Statement

To provide plan review and permitting services, which maintain minimum, adopted code standards while meeting the customer's reasonable expectations of service.


 As part of the Towns’ efforts to expedite permitting services, the Town now requires an estimated plan review fee to be paid at the time of initial application for most permit types*. The fee(s) will be based on the applicant’s stated valuation, and if applicable, the number of civil engineering related plan sheets as listed in the checklist for a commercial submittal.

Plan review fee(s) will be finalized at the completion of first review with any balance due collected at that time and any credit applied to the final cost.

NOTE: Sign permit applicants will be required to pay the permit fee at the time of initial application.

*Exempt from pre-paid plan review fees are the following application types:
