Building Permit and Variance Requirement Cheat Sheet

from Chapters 56 and 112 of the Code of the Village of Tully

 

You do NOT need a building permit if:

        You are conducting necessary repairs which do not materially affect structural features

        Alterations to existing buildings cost less than $10,000

        Alterations do not affect fire safety features such as smoke detectors, sprinklers, required fire separations and exits

        Alterations do not involve the installation or extension of electrical systems

        Alterations do not include the installation of solid-fuel heating appliances and associated chimneys and flues

 

You probably need a Building Permit in any other case.

 

You may require an Area Variance if a structure or alterations to an existing structure fall within a front, side or backyard setback required by the zoning for your location.  Your zoning R code can be found on your tax bill or the Onondaga County Real Property database at www.ongov.net.
