There are 3 main* types of permits you may need for building projects in Springdale:
Use the information below to determine which permits you may need for your specific project. Applicants must secure proper Town and County approvals. Unpermitted work will incur double the permit fee.
*If your building will house commercial activity, you may require a Conditional Use Permit (CUP). Contact the Plan Commission Administrator to determine if this applies to you.
If you are building an accessory or commercial structure, click here. For all other projects (does my project require a permit?):
Fees are determined by the building inspector and/or Town ordinance/resolution. Fees must be mailed to the Town (2379 Town Hall Rd.) and be received/processed before permits can be released, and prior to being placed on a Town meeting agenda (if applicable).
If your proposed accessory structure is greater than 120 sq. ft. or if the proposed structure will result in the total square footage of all accessory buildings on your property exceeding 1500 sq. ft., you must obtain an accessory building permit (application below) from the Town.
Fill out and submit the Accessory Building Permit Application. Payment must be received prior to scheduling Town Board or Plan Commission review. Be sure to also review Springdale's Accessory Building Guide and Accessory Building Ordinance.
Approval: If your proposed structure is between 120 and 1500 sq. ft., the Town Board chair can approve or deny the application outside of a Town Board meeting. If your proposed structure is greater than 1500 sq. ft. (or if the total square footage of the buildings on your property including the proposed building will exceed 1500 sq. ft.) the Plan Commission and Town Board will review your application for approval. Applications for PC/Board approval must be submitted and paid at least 2 weeks prior to the next applicable meeting date.
If the intended use of your accessory building is commercial (for retail sales/services) or any sort of business, you must first discuss your intent with the Town prior to applying for any rezoning or accessory building permits. Residents should review their current zoning district's permitted and conditional uses as well as Section 10 of the Springdale Land Use Plan where the limited, non-residential uses of land are outlined.
If you are interested in proceeding with a commercial building, please send an email to begin the process. Commercial buildings will require a rezone and/or a conditional use permit (CUP) prior to or in conjunction with accessory building approval.
