Can I begin construction after the Building Board has approved my project?
No. The Building Board approves only the design / architectural merits of the project. All projects, upon approval from the Building Board, are forwarded to the building inspector to ensure compliance with applicable building code requirements. The Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling Code provides building inspectors with 10 business days to take action on a building permit application. The building inspector cannot begin review of your project until all required materials (plans, Building Board approval, property survey, and other submittal requirements) have been filed with the Village.
