Building & Codes

Please note:

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, these temporary measures will be in place until further notice to allow for dropping off and pickup of building permits and AFT applications:

From 8AM until 2:30PM, permit & AFT applications can be left at the Trustee’s drive through window on the northeast side of the building. There is also a drop box before the window to allow for drop off during these hours and after hours. All material must be inside an envelope no larger than 8.5”x11” paper, including house plans. Contact department destination must read clearly on the envelope. Please review the checklists for required documents that are on the permit applications. Once permits and plan reviews have been completed, our office will contact you for pickup and payment at this same drive through window. An estimate for your time of arrival will be helpful for pickup.

Electrical permits can be obtained by calling 615-325-5026.

For swimming pools, use the Building Permits Application.
