Planning will make for smooth home-improvement projects

Spring has arrived, and several may be thinking about setting up a household-enhancement project to go together with blooming trees and hotter climate.  

Ahead of starting any development, be it a new house addition, patio or deck, garage, pool, fence or other property-improvement task, please call the community enhancement division at 614.939.2254 to determine if a permit will be vital.

For initiatives like decks, patios, swimming pools and fences, allow programs want to include things like: 

• a residential application form 

• two copies of scaled drawings indicating the proportions of the project 

• two copies of a web-site plan displaying the challenge (with distances marked from the rear and side yard setbacks of the home)  

• a description of the exterior elements to be applied for the project. 

These objects are necessary to exhibit the undertaking will comply with all applicable zoning limits.
