When is a Building Permit Required?

Springtime is often a time when people start to think about remodeling or making repairs around the house or yard. The City of Melissa Neighborhood and Development Services department wants to remind all our residents that before you or your contractor undertakes any such effort, be sure to double check with us to determine whether or not a permit is required. 

In general, no one may erect, construct, enlarge, add to, alter, repair, replace, improve, remove, install, convert, equip, use, occupy or maintain a structure or building service equipment without first obtaining a permit from the Permit Department. Examples may include but are not limited to installation/repair of hot water heater, fences, and roofs.  Visit our website for required forms and more.

Remember if you are not sure - JUST ASK!  Feel free to contact us at (972) 838-2036 or  you may email ecraver@cityofmelissa.com.
