Frequently Asked Questions

Do building permits require zoning approval?
Before you do any construction of any kind, you should contact your local municipality to ensure that what you are doing is permitted and is consistent and in accordance with the zoning or with any other construction codes that they may have. Not every municipality has zoning, so you may or may not need to comply with certain zoning to run certain businesses or do some construction, but you shouldn’t spend a penny of your money until you know for sure. If you have questions that go beyond that, then you should certainly seek private counsel.
