Building Permit Procedures

In order to avoid delays, contractors, builders and shareholders preparing for construction projects should contact the CWC office and arrange to receive the new forms and procedures for construction activities on the lake. The new process and forms place greater controls on construction and require additional inspections during the project. No increases in permit fees are anticipated, and the forms are one page and simple. Forms are available to download here or we can fax, mail or email them to you or you can pick them up at the office. The changes are in effect now.
