Mission Statement:

To protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents through enforcement of the NYS Building Code and the Code of the Town of Ogden.
  • Provide control & direction of development to benefit the whole
  • Maintain open communication
  • Provide fiscal responsibility
The majority of Towns in Monroe County have Fire Marshal's on their staff and therefore have a permit process for permitting. In 2023, the Town of Ogden is incorporating a permit process and associated fee schedule to offset administrative costs. Fire safety inspections are required by NYS Law. The process will increase our efficiency and place the Town of Ogden in line with neighboring communities.

We work with new homeowners and long-time residents interested in building new homes, or making alterations to existing ones, as well as people wishing to do commercial construction and alterations, including change in occupancies. Our staff will work with you to help make the building permit and certificate of occupancy (C/O) process as simple as possible. 

Building permit inspections and certificates of occupancy are your assurance and ours that your home and the buildings and stores in the Town meet the building codes for structural soundness and fire safety. The Town Codes are accessible via the internet.

In addition, the department is involved with all Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals applications.
