Construction Permits

Most projects that require a Zoning Permit will require a construction permit. Contact the Trades Division (802-863-9094), as soon as possible to find out what will be required for your construction permit(s). Most applications that require a zoning permit also require a Building, Electrical, Plumbing and/or Mechanical permit.  All can be applied for together in the online permit system.  Zoning approval always comes first.  

Project Changes: Projects can change during the construction phase. Any changes from the approved zoning plans and elevations (regardless of whether they have been required by a City Inspector) will require an amendment to the original or a new zoning permit before proceeding to the Certificate of Occupancy. If the change is minor, this can sometimes be done in the form of an "As-Built Plan" approved by the Zoning Administrator. Contact the Zoning Division to find out how any changes during construction will be processed in anticipation of Certificate of Occupancy issuance. See Project Completion for more information.
