Permits & Applications

UPDATED DECEMBER 10--Until further notice, Canton’s Building and Inspection Services Division offices are open to the public by appointment only. However, all inspections can be scheduled on the CAPS system.

Permit applications are being accepted via U.S. Mail, Fed Ex, UPS or our drop box for small envelopes located at the Administration Building entrance. Plans are being reviewed and permits issued once paid for either online or through one of the delivery methods previously mentioned. Please provide the minimum of the $40 admin fee for all permit submissions.

Plan reviews will be completed in the order received and as soon as possible. We are not able to estimate review times at this time. Use our online portal link below for plan review status checks. You will receive an email notification of permit approvals with outstanding fees or corrections to be made.

An online application submittal link in the side bar is available for concrete/paver flatwork and accessory structures under 200 s.f. (sheds)

Permits and approved plans will be e-mailed. Arrangements must be made with the building official to obtain approved plans larger than 11 x 17.

Canton thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding.
