Department Responsibilities

BEFORE you begin . . . 

Regardless of your project, the first step in the process is to review the Zoning and Permit Requirements page and the Tax Assessment Chart to identify any tax implications, and to find out if the project requires zoning approval and/or a permit.  

If you do require a zoning approval and/or construction permit, visit our Zoning & Permit Instructions page to learn more about the process of obtaining your required documentation.


You must call the office secretary at 973-402-9410 ext. 630 to set up any inspection. There is a minimum of 24-hour notice required. Your permit number is required for all inspection requests.
