Do I need a building permit?

Most external changes to a property except for planting require a permit. Internal permits are required if you are installing or changing electrical, plumbing and structural or when you open the walls (remove drywall or plaster), as well some other items. To see if your project requires a permit, contact the department at 815-741-5106.
