Uniform Construction Code & Non Uniform Construction Code Applications

The applications for permits required under the Uniform Construction Code (building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical) have been updated and combined into one application. The application for non-UCC permits (curb and sidewalk, swimming pools, fences, sheds etc.) has also been revised. Beginning August 1, 2016 older versions of the permit applications will no longer be accepted. For your convenience, these applications are now form fillable. You can fill the application out and then print it. Only the fields that the applicant must fill out are form fillable and begin with the parcel identification number. Click on that box, fill it in and simply hit tab to go to the next required field. Please remember that incomplete applications cannot be accepted. If you are requesting a permit for a tenant occupied property the license must be current in order to receive a permit.

LERTA & ReTAP Applications

Applications for LERTA or ReTAP must be submitted at the time permits are issued. Please make sure that you have your current assessment card or tax bill when submitting the application.

Permit Applications

All applications must be returned to the Bureau of Permits, Planning and Zoning located 101 South George Street. Some applications will require a fee to accompany the permit at the time of submission. For more information, please call the Bureau of Permits, Planning and Zoning at 717-849-2256 during normal business hours.
