Village officials: Approval needed for exterior projects

With warm weather comes an increase in building projects. With that in mind, Village of Swanton officials are reminding residents about the requirement of submitting a Zoning Approval Application for many exterior home projects, including an addition, new shed, deck, or fence.

Residents are asked to submit the applications well in advance of a project as the village administrator must issued an approved zoning permit prior to construction. There is no guarantee, the administrator will be able to issue the zoning permit the same day the application is submitted.

Those with questions about applications, zoning code regulations or anything related to residential home project can contact the village office at 419-826-9515 to schedule an appointments.

The townships surrounding the village also have zoning requirements for projects. Contact your township officials for more information.
