Building Permits

The Boone County Commission adopted building codes in 1985.  A program of inspection services began in March 1986 following the adoption of the National B.O.C.A. codes.  Boone County adopted 2015 International Codes which will be effective April 1, 2017. All permits issued on and after that date will be subject to the 2015 codes. The addendums to this code may be found under our "regulations" link on the left menu.

All applications for building permits are reviewed for compliance with land use regulations, floodplain regulations, and address requirements.  Inspections take place throughout the construction process.

The County Commission adopts regulations on the recommendations of the Building Code Commission.  The Code Commission meets as needed to review proposed code changes and amendments. Structures that meet the building code are issued a Certificate of Occupancy.
