Permits

No building or other structure (home, shed, garage, pool, fence, deck, porch, etc.) shall be erected, moved, added to, structurally altered, nor shall any building, structure or land be established or changed in use without a permit issued by the Zoning Inspector.

An essential step, both for your own planning and to get Village approval, is to draw a site plan. A site plan shows your property line and key information such as buildings, setbakcs, lot line, etc. At this stage, you are going to draw in the major elements like building footprints, driveways, significant adjacent features, etc. Start by sketching out your property lines. Measure your property lines and mark them accordingly. Then add any existing structures (porches, decks, sheds, garages, pools). Focus on the basic shape. Measure distances from your property line to the structure, as well as distances between existing structures and the new structure. You don't need to worry about the inside floor plan, you just need to capture the footprint.

Within ten days after the receipt of properly completed application, and if applicable, review deposit, the Zoning Inspector shall either approve or disapprove the applicaiton in conformance with the provisions of the zoning ordinance. If work described in any zoning permit has not begun within six months from the date of issuance, said permit shall expire. If work described in any zoning permit has not been substantially completed within one year of the dat of issuance, said permit shall expire.

Permit application forms are available for download. Please see the list under the Available Documents section of this page. Completed permit applications can be submitted via mail, drop-off, or, e-mail (please see our contact information below). Applications must be submitted with the fee payment, which can be paid with a check, cash, or debit/credit card. 

IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR A PERMIT THAT HAS MORE THAN ONE PROPOSED USE, YOU MUST SUBMIT A PERMIT FOR EACH PROPOSED USE YOU ARE APPLYING FOR. A $30.00 FEE WILL BE CHARGED PER PERMIT. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR THE USE OF A FENCE AND A SHED, YOU MUST SUBMIT A PERMIT FOR EACH AND PAY THE $30.00 PERMIT FEE FOR EACH.
