Building and Zoning Permits

A zoning permit is required prior to constructing a building, fence, pool, deck, patio, driveway, shed, or sidewalk.  Please apply on-line at the City’s website (permit tab on main page).

In addition to a zoning permit, a building permit is required for all commercial, industrial, and residential buildings.  A building permit is also required for decks and sheds larger than 200 square feet and pools.  Please contact the Clinton County Building Department at 989-224-5181 to obtain a building permit application.
