NOTE: Prior to submitting an application for a permit, you will need to see the Zoning Administrator for permit approval.  The approval form needed by the Zoning Office is attached to the front of the permit application packets.  Once you have all required forms, affidavits, registrations and the application completely filled out; you would then take the application packet and the approval form to the Zoning Office for approval.  Once you have Zoning approval you will be able to submit the application for a permit.  

A permit will not be issued unless all necessary information is completed and submitted together.
