The Office of Community Standards (OCS) consists of the Building Department, Planning & Zoning Department, and Ordinance Department working together to uphold every aspect of community standards, abate public nuisances and correct zoning and land use issues. This department is responsible to verify safe compliance with codes that are designed to protect the public and ensure safe construction.
If you are planning on building a deck, porch, replace your hot water tank, furnace or other home improvement a permit is needed. A building permit must be reviewed - please allow a minimum of 5 - 10 business days from the time you submit your application to the time you can pick it up and start work. Every Tuesday the Building Department has "Counter Plan Review". Small projects can be reviewed and issued during this time.
Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 4:30pm (Closed 12:00pm - 1:00pm for lunch daily.)
