The primary goals of building and zoning codes are:
Providing a means to promote the public health, safety and general welfare of residents and to conserve the value of land and buildings.

When must you apply for a building permit? Building  permit applications may be intimidating.  For this reason you are encouraged to contact Frank Stankevitz, Building Inspector/Code Officer at (207)872-2776, while you are planning any project which may require a permit.  Frank will meet with you and explain what may be required to comply with the zoning and building codes.

What work requires a permit?  A simple phone call to our Office at (207)872-2776 can usually determine if a permit is required.  Some home maintenance activities are exempt from permits.  But again it’s best to ask the building inspector before starting any project.

What do the codes say about permits?  In part they say, “No building, structure or sign shall be erected, constructed, moved, added to or structurally altered, nor shall land be put to any sue without a permit therefore issued by the Code Officer.”

Some examples are:  New buildings……….Additions…………..Renovations……….Demolitions
Sheds………….Mobile Homes……….Pools………..Electrical or Plumbing……….. Signs………… Change of use or Occupancy of buildings.
