Building Permit Application Process

If you are considering any additions or improvements to your home, first check with the Community Development Department at 847-658-2700 regarding necessary building permits. Building permits are required before most interior or exterior improvements are made. This includes, but is not limited to, roofs, fences, decks, patios, pools, sheds, and other accessory structures. Residents moving into a newly constructed home need to obtain an occupancy permit from the Community Development Department prior to moving into their home. Permit review may take up to five weeks; please plan ahead.
