Mission Statement

Maximize building safety for the general public and uphold the State Building Code, efficiency and public relations.

The Building Department provides the executive leadership needed to effectively conduct the business of our Town Government in the areas of:
  1. Building Construction: Conduct plan reviews, issue permits, perform inspections and testing, issue Certificates of Occupancies for each form of new, repaired, or altered construction in Town.
  2. Building Safety: Research State Statutes and Building Codes, and coordinate all Town department approvals to achieve a maximum of building safety for the general public whether it be in our schools, businesses, or residential homes.
  3. Public Awareness: Act as liaison for the public and contractors. Accumulate, documents and update the public to code requirements and safety issues.
  4. Enforcement: Investigate complaints, fire and demolition activities; Respond to emergencies, issue abatements, cease and desists, violations, request orders of condemnation, injunctions, and fines to achieve code compliance.



We are currently experiencing staffing challenges for licensed building officials. As a result, we have employed temporary assistance from officials from other communities while we work to fill open positions.

To schedule an inspection or for routine permitting and building code questions, please call 203-452-2805. Permit applications and other correspondence for the Building Department may be dropped off at Town Hall during normal business hours, or 24x7 in the Town Hall Drop Box located in the lobby of the Police Department.
