Building new property structures can be an exciting – yet overwhelming – task for homeowners, business entrepreneurs, farmers and contractors. Typically, the first step in this process is obtaining the necessary permits for smooth construction.
In Red Wing, no edifice can be created, repaired, removed, converted or demolished unless a building permit has been issued, according to its website.
Luckily for residents, the city makes all of their permits online accessible, with paper copies at the Community Development Building located at 419 Bush St.
“The application process can be done all online and with gas prices these days, it’s probably more affordable and faster,” Frank Peterson, building inspector, said. “We try to make this as easy as possible for people. I will walk people through the online process if they need the help.”
The following permits can be found on red-wing.org and require a description of the work, location and use of new structure.
Demolition or moving
Roll-off dumpster parking
Once submitted, all applications will be reviewed and issued for work that meets Minnesota State Building codes and city requirements.
Permits will be considered null and void if authorized work does not begin within 190 days of acceptance date.
