Building / Code Enforcement / Zoning

This department is responsible for the enforcement of the New York State Commercial and Residential Building Codes and Fire Prevention inspections, within the Town of Grand Island, as well as the various portions of the Town Code.

Building permits are issued, plans and specifications are reviewed and various inspections are conducted.

We assist the public, contractors, and design professionals in understanding the various code requirements as they apply to their particular projects.

We prepare periodic reports, notices, and related documents. We perform required fire safety inspections of existing buildings and investigate complaints relating to code violations.

Whether you are a contractor or a resident planning a project, we can help you.
