Building Permits

The City of Lexington has adopted the 2018 Edition of the International Codes.  Building permit applications are available at the front desk during regular business hours at City Hall, 919 Franklin Avenue. Upon submission of the application, along with the appropriate payment, the building inspector will review the application and let the applicant know when the permit is approved.  Payment for a building permit may also be made when the permit is ready for pickup.  If additional information is needed, the building inspector may request a meeting with the applicant to discuss the permit.  At no time shall work commence on a regulated project without an approved permit.  Applicants should not expect same-day approval for a building permit. 

For additional information, please contact city hall at 660-259-4633.
