Building Division

Summit County requires a Building Permit for the construction, enlargement, alteration, repair, movement, improvement, removal, conversion or demolition of any building or structure. There are exceptions for buildings less than 120 square feet, fences less than 6' in height, and certain agricultural buildings.

Please keep in mind that plans cannot be reviewed over the counter without an appointment. Over the counter reviews are limited to single story detached garages that do not exceed 720 square feet, additions to single family dwellings that are single story and do not exceed 400 square feet, basement finishes, requests for new siding, windows, furnaces, and duct work replacement, and tenant finishes in which the contractor/architect has previously spoken with the Plans Examiner.

Please feel free to contact the Building Department to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions.
