Your property is an important investment and improvements add value for you and affect the look of your neighborhood. Because outdoor changes to your property – fences, decks, sheds, swimming pools, etc. – can affect your neighbors, property owners are typically required to seek a permit. For more information please visit the Applications page.
Whenever digging on your property, law requires that property owners call the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) at 8-1-1 or (800) 362-2764. It is required that at least 48 hours notice, but no more than 10 days, be given so underground utilities can be marked. There is also an online notification process with OUPS.
