Building Permit Requirement
Building Permits (PDF) are required for all new residential or commercial construction sites, additions and structural alterations.

Types of work that do not require a permit are generally cosmetic in nature; for example: siding, roofing, and painting.

Permits shall not be required for one-story detached accessory structures used as tool and storage sheds, playhouses and similar uses; provided the floor area does not exceed 120 square feet.

Other permits that may be required by the City of Chadron are Fence Permits (PDF), sign permits, and use of right-of-way permits for sidewalks, driveways and plantings.

The Zoning/Building Department can assist you in determining if your project requires a permit.
