Building Permits

A building permit is an official approval by the City of Crown Point that allows you or your contractor to proceed with a construction and/or remodeling project on your property. It is intended to ensure that the project complies with city standards for land use, zoning, and code compliance. These standards are intended to ensure the safety of current and future owners and occupants and to provide enforcement of land-use policies and compliancy with State Building codes.

A permit shall be obtained before the commencement of construction, alterations, demolition or repair of any building, structure, or improvement, including decks, patios and balconies 12 inches or higher from lot grade.
