Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to questions relating to planning, zoning, and inspections!

Are special permit approvals ever needed?
Occasionally, the Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council must act on the work contemplated.  In this case, a conditional use permit, variance, etc. must be applied for in addition to the building permit.  Be sure to allow adequate time since this process can take over a month.

Do I need a building permit?
Building Permits are required for new construction and most remodeling projects. Some of the most commonly obtained permits are for roofing, siding, decks, fences, pools, and sheds.  Apply for these permits at Lexington City Hall or start the permit process now by printing a permit online.  Allow at least five to seven business days from the date the permit and all required information is received by the Building Official for approval on residential and commercial permits.  Separate permits are needed for mechanical, plumbing and electrical.
