Do I Need a Permit?
Some routine or small projects, not involving footings or electrical wiring, may not require a permit. Examples are sidewalk and driveway paving and some sheds depending on their size. It is important that you check first and comply with all applicable building codes and permits.
Purpose of Building Codes
The purpose of building codes are to provide minimum standards to safeguard life, health, property and public welfare by regulating and controlling the design, construction, quality of materials, use and occupancy, location and maintenance of all buildings, structures and certain equipment within the city limits of Carlisle.
If you are planning a building project, you should contact the City Hall for information pertaining to building codes, permits as well as the availability and cost for electrical, water and sewer services. Failure to do so can result in a project incurring unexpected costs.
Contact City Hall for more information.
