What is required to apply for a building permit?

You must supply:

  • An application fee
  • The builder’s proof of workers’ compensation coverage
  • A building permit application
  • A Certificate of Appropriateness (only if the work is being conducted in the Historic District)
  • The name of the builder
  • Three sets of architectural plans (all plans must be stamped and signed by a licensed New York State architect or engineer)
  • Two surveys indicating the proposed work (only the surveyor may make modifications to the survey)

If the application being submitted is for a pool, a catalog cut (section) of the pool must be included.
