The Summit County Building Inspection Department is where all building permit processes begin.

Per the International Building Code (IBC) and the International Residential Code (IRC), permits are required for all new structures, alterations to existing structures, remodels, decks, hot tubs and window replacements.  We do not require a permit for re-roofing, unless the scope of work includes structural changes to the roof.

The Building Inspection Department brings in applications and construction documents and routes them through all the appropriate internal review agencies.

The four internal review agencies include Planning, Engineering, Building Inspection, and Environmental Health departments. Planning will verify permitted uses, setbacks, lighting, and building height. Engineering looks at grading, drainage, and erosion control. Building Inspection looks at the construction of the building. Environmental Health reviews septic system design and water rights.
Please refer to individual web pages for additional information.
