The City of Ravenna enforces it's building code through the issuance of building permits and through followup inspections of those projects which have received permits. Failure to obtain the necessary permit(s) may result in "stop work" orders, delays, and/or fines. If you are in doubt as to whether your project needs a permit please contact the building department. Some examples of projects needing permits are:

  • New construction such as new homes, garages, commercial buildings, etc.
  • Additions to existing structures, both residential and commercial.
  • New decks / porches.
  • New roofs.
  • New siding.
  • Major electrical repairs or updates.
