Building & Community Development Permitting Portal

This page contains instructions, application forms, and information related to the permitting processes governed by the Building Department, the Planning Board, and the Zoning Board of Appeals. Note that while any one project may trigger multiple permitting processes, they are each distinct from each other and require their own fees and permit application forms. If you have questions regarding which permits may apply to your project, please contact the Building Department. You should also review the Permitting Due Diligence Guide before preparing your applications.
