Beginning January 1, 2023 building & zoning permit applications will be able to be done through the City’s website permit portal (we have done away with paper permit applications).

Permitting is generally quick and relatively inexpensive in Rutland City. We strive to ensure safe and orderly development. There are multiple ordinances that govern construction and property uses in the City of Rutland. Failure to comply leads to a series of enforcement steps and can affect your ability to sell your property in the future. We are here to help you avoid that! It is always best to call our office and check before fully designing your project. These are the types of work that typically require permits from our office.
Please note: If you are planning to make or expand a driveway, a curb cut permit may be required. Please check with the Department of Public Works and the Zoning Administrator
The following are examples for when both building & zoning permits are needed:
