NEW CODES COMING
The Ohio Board of Building Standards has adopted new codes for commercial, industrial, and multi-family dwellings, effective November 1, 2017.  As of that date we will enforce the 2017 Ohio Building Code, the 2017 Ohio Mechanical Code, the 2017 NEC, and other associated standards.  Applications for permits received up to October 31 will be reviewed and inspected under the current codes.  Applications received in our office (postmark dates don't count) on or after November 1 will be reviewed and inspected under the new codes.

The upcoming building and mechanical codes can be found on the OBBS website at: http://www.com.ohio.gov/dico/bbs/default.aspx
They can also be purchased from the International Code Council at:

UPDATED FEE SCHEDULE

Effective July 1, 2017, Building Regulations began using its updated fee schedule.   Along with revised amounts, we made significant changes to simplify the schedule, and to make it more equitable.  All applications will need to use new application forms and will have fees assessed per the new schedule.  See the FEE tab for more information about the new fees, and see the APPLICATION FORMS tab for the new applications.  

As part of this update, REGISTRATION OF MECHANICAL CONTRACTORS HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED.

CHECK OUR PERMIT DATABASE WITH eCONNECT IMG AIDA webpost ps

Our eConnect software allows you to link directly to our permit database.  You can now search for the Status of all permits issued since 1993. 

You can check the status of applications, and if they are on hold, why. We also document inspections as to when they are conducted, and whether they have passed or failed.  The Parcel search will let you see all of the permits applied for and issued for a property. Click on one of the buttons to the left to transfer to our eConnect site. 

To check the Status of a Permit or Application, type in identifying information about the Property or the Applicant.  Note that since the software is looking for exact matches, often less is more in information you type in.  Include the minimum information you think will be necessary to find distinct records, especially since information entered may have been  slightly different than you would.  For instance, our records may or may not have "Inc." after an applicant name.  If you type in the name only, it will return selections with and without the "Inc.", and you can then select from those found.

The button to Find Permit Info by Parcel or Address will lead you to a similar search form.  Again, try to enter the least amount of information to distinguish the property you are looking for.  You do not need to fill in all of the boxes. You can also enter partial words or addresses to broaden your search.  Read the help notes on that page for other tips for searching our records.
