Residential Building Permits
The City of Edgerton requires building permits to ensure that structures and systems are safe and comply with the City's building codes.
We have a handy checklist to help you decide if you need a building permit! Download the checklist here. Permits are required whenever you make significant or structural changes to your property, especially anything involving mechanical, plumbing, or electrical. Most major renovations including roofs, decks, and foundation projects will require a permit. Projects like replacing cabinetry, changing a faucet, or adding a fence do not require permits.
If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 913.893.6231 and ask for Community Development.
