Demolition Permit

Demolition/Removal permits are required for the complete demolition and/or removal of any structure and are reviewed for compliance with the minimum standards necessary to safeguard public health, safety, and welfare. The intent of these procedures is to protect the public against personal injury or property damage and to ensure completion of the demolition or removal and cleanup of the site. A Demolition/Removal Permit is not required to demolish part of a structure. Partial demolition will require a Building Permit.

All open plumbing and sewer lines must be capped in an approved manner whether a demolition permit is required or not. A separate permit is not required for the capping of the sewer.
