How can I find out the permit fees for my project?
For us to calculate fees for all permits, be prepared to provided an estimate of the cost of your project or, for residential and commercial building permits, the area (square feet), construction type, use category and extent of the work to be completed can be provided as an alternative to the cost estimate. To get an estimate, call 937-333-3986 or 937-333-6794. The method of fee calculations can be found on the second page of the Building / Zoning Application.
