The Building Department is closed.
To continue important construction work and in accordance with the Governor’s determination that construction activity is considered an essential service, the Building Department will continue to inspect on-going permit activity. However, given reduced staffing levels and social distancing, the Department will not issue demolition permits or new building permits for the time being. Emergency inspections will occur on a case-by-case basis.
