How do I get a permit?

Building permit applications are available in our office at Bow’s Municipal Building or here on our website. In addition to a completed application for each project there may be specific requirements needed to process permit applications. 


The Building Permit & Plan Submittal Requirements page has the lists of documentation required for permit applications. Majority of residential projects do not require stamped engineered plans, however it is up to the Inspector to determine when engineered plans would be required. Plumbing, mechanical and electrical plans may also be required on a case-by-case basis.
