Building and Land Use

Due to the volume of requests being presented, it is recommended an applicant for a building permit allow a minimum of FIVE business days from the time an application is dropped off until approval; TEN business days for home additions, new homes, and commercial or institutional projects.

It is STRONGLY recommended that applicants for projects involving new buildings, building expansions, or changes in use schedule a meeting with Village staff early in the planning process.

For inspections or inquiries on building code requirements, contact Building Inspector Paul Hermes at (920) 858-0102.
