If you are planning a construction or demolition project, you must submit an Application for a Building Permit or Application for a Demolition Permit. The permit will be placed on the Planning Commission’s agenda. If you reside anywhere other than a residential district the permit will then be forwarded to the Board of Trustees for their approval or denial at their monthly meeting. The Planning Commission meets the fourth Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. (if Memorial Day falls on the fourth Monday they meet the third Monday of May, no December meeting.) The Board of Trustees meet the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. Items not requiring a Building Permit are temporary dog kennels, sidewalks, driveways, cement patio’s, and concrete slabs. A shed 150 square feet or less does not require a permit but does need to meet setbacks. A permit is required prior to cutting into village streets.
