Why do I need a permit?

Building and construction codes are adopted by the Village to confirm the construction meets life safety requirements for the building owners and occupants. Such codes are updated regularly to reflect improvement in building techniques, materials, and technology. Building permits are required to confirm that design professionals and contractors working on your home do so in a professional manner and compliant with the latest updated codes.
