Overview

The Town of Kirkwood maintains high expectations when dealing with building codes and other ordinance enforcement.  The main duty of the Town Building and Code Enforcement Office is to make sure that all residents and future residents of the Town are adhering to the rules set forth by both state and town law.  This includes fire inspection, building permits, and property maintenance laws.  If you have any questions regarding town or state code please direct your questions to the Building and Code Enforcement Office at 775-4313.

Building Permits

The following is a checklist of the necessary materials you MUST present to the building department in order to be eligible for a building permit:

  1. Original plans specific to the project. These may need to be stamped by a New York State licensed architect or engineer. SUBMIT TWO COMPLETE SETS OF PLANS.
  2. Specifications for the project.
  3. Workers’ Compensation document or signed Certificate of Insurance Waiver signed.
  4. County or State approval information, if located outside of the Sewer District.
  5. Completed Building Permit information.
  6. Appropriate fee, checks should be payable to: The Town of Kirkwood.

After the plans are reviewed and corrections and modifications are completed, a Building Permit will be issued.

During the construction, inspections are required.  Please contact us at least TWO DAYS in advance for the inspections on the list.

Please be sure that ALL of the inspections are performed including a final inspection.

If electrical work is installed, the electrical inspections are performed by any one of the two independent agents (Commonwealth Electrical Inspection Services, Inc, or Atlantic Inland Inc.).  Please contact one of them and schedule inspections for the electrical work with them.  They charge separate fees.

After the project is completed, submit to us a copy of the final electrical inspection certificate.

**Any question should be directed to the Town Building Department
