1st Step: Building Permit

 

The Village of Saranac Lake's Planning/Code Enforcement Office works very hard to ensure that projects get off the ground and are completed in a safe manner that meets NYS Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code  This starts with you: 

 

  • It is up to the applicant and any hired help to work to submit a substantive application. Once a plan has been put on paper, it is more accessible to each party to come together and make your dream deck, addition, renovation, or new building project a reality. 

 

  • *Project size does not always determine the need to complete a building permit application. If you are unsure whether your home or business project triggers a building permit process, please contact the Code Enforcement office, (518)891-4150.
