Where can I get a building permit?
Cattaraugus County does not issue building permits for construction. These are issued by the local municipalities - cities, towns and villages. If you are proposing to do any construction, you will need to contact the building inspector for the municipality in which you want to build to find out what permits are required.
Zoning permits may also be required for any new uses or construction, or improvements to existing structures. These are also issued by the local municipalities and may include site plan review, special use permits, and variances. Not every municipality in Cattaraugus County has zoning regulations; please check with the local building inspector for any zoning regulations that may apply to your project.
