Applications & Plan Reviews

Please use Google Chrome for accessing applications in the permit software, CommunityCore.

Once your application materials are completely submitted, SAFEbuilt will review the plans (up to 5 business days for residential permits and 10 business days for commercial permits), and they will contact you if they need any clarifications or additional info.

If the plan reviewer does not approve for any reason and you are required to resubmit, you must log-into your CommunityCore account and ensure you select "Resubmit Plans / Respond to Comments" to upload new files.

After your plans are approved, the permit fees will be assessed in your CommunityCore account. Please pay through CommunityCore or at Village Hall.

Once payment has been received, SAFEbuilt will issue the permit and the inspection card. They will be available in your CommunityCore account in the Documents menu under "System-Generated" for viewing/printing. Please ensure the permit is posted in plain view on your jobsite at all times during construction. Contact SAFEbuilt if you cannot find the permit documents.


Please obtain a permit before scheduling work to be done. There may be pre-work inspections required.

Your required inspections will be posted in your CommunityCore account. Please reach out to SAFEbuilt if you have questions about your inspections or if you cannot see them.

You may schedule inspections using CommunityCore or through contacting SAFEbuilt.
