WHY GET A BUILDING PERMIT?
Zoning and building codes are created to preserve your health, safety, general welfare, and property. They are designed to help keep
you, your guests, and even your future homebuyer safe and out of harm’s way. As part of the overall process to insure that the rules
for building and zoning are followed as consistently and fairly as possible, building permits are a necessary step before many types of
building or repair projects are started.
The City of Mason Engineering & Building Department administers most building permits for work within the city. Warren County
issues permits for plumbing-related items. Homeowners are required to obtain the necessary building permits before work begins.
As part of the permit process, you must state what you plan to do and provide a set of plans for your project. During the permit
review process, any potential issues are identified. These may save you from costly modifications later, such as having to replace a
wall built with improper materials or spacing, putting a structure too close to a property line, or building a basement bedroom
without a window properly sized for an emergency exit.
Except for plumbing, permit applications and information sheets can be found at imaginemason.org or by visiting the customer
service center at Mason Municipal Center. All indoor plumbing in the City of Mason requires a plumbing permit through the Warren
County Health Department, Plumbing Division, at 513-695-1476.
