Building Department

Building Department Introduction:

Clinton's Building Official receives building permit applications, reviews building and site plans, assists the applicant with requirements for other agencies, answers questions on the building process and works to protect the Town and the public's general health, safety and welfare.

The Building Department is responsible for monitoring all building activities in Town through the issuance of permits and inspections for all new and renovated buildings, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, demolitions and gas and oil tank installations and removals. Department files are coded and digitally recorded on the Treeno document management system for future reference. This department is regulated by State Statutes and a close working relationship is maintained with the Fire Marshal's Office.

The Building Department Office is open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday thru Wednesday, 9:00am to 7:00 pm on Thursday and 9:00am to 12:00 pm on Friday.


This Webpage is undergoing an update.

The Building Department will go live with a new permitting system sometime in late June, 2022. In the meantime, please do not pay a $15 zoning fee that may be added to your fee at the bottom of your application.

Contact the Zoning Department at 860-669-6133 to find out if a review and fee are required. 

Prior to any Building permits being issued, the fee must be paid by cash or check, in person or by mail.

If you have any question about the fee, please call the office to verify the amount.

Checks can be made to the Town of Clinton.
