Requirement to Obtain a Building Permit

1.  Building Permit application must be completely filled out.

2.  When changing the footprint of the property, the site must be staked and inspected by a Member of the Building Committee.

3.  A set of drawings must be submitted with the Building Permit application.  The drawings must indicate the size of the structure, the location of the building, adjacent streets, property lines, etc.

4.  A penalty will be assessed if permits are not approved prior to start of construction.

Requirements after Receiving a Building Permit

1.  Any surface water cannot be diverted or piped into the sanitary sewer system.  Perimeter tiling is permitted only when such tiles are connected to an existing storm sewer system.  The City of Oxford Junction's Maintenance Department must first approve any water being diverted into an existing storm sewer.  The cost of doing this is at the sole expense of the property owner.
