Obtaining a Building Permit


  1. Contact your Local Zoning for approval for your specific project.

  2. If your project includes plumbing contact the Health Department for approval.

  3. Bring a copy of the Zoning and Plumbing approvals (if applicable) to the Building Department or mail them to: ATTN. Building Department 25 W. Jefferson St. Jefferson, Ohio 44047 along with 2 sets of construction documents, and a complete application.

  4. Your plans will then go through the Plan Review Process (up to 30 Days).

  5. After the plans are reviewed your plans will be issued an approval or will require more information for the project. (At that time the fees associated with the project are due and shall be paid before the permit will be issued).
