Do I need a building permit in the Town of New Haven?
You must first check with Dunn County Zoning to see what, if any, permit(s) they may require. Their phone number is 715-231-6520. A link to Dunn County's website is available under "Links" on the left.
If your building and/or remodeling project costs more than $2,500 you will also need to obtain a Town of New Haven Building Permit from the Clerk. The town permit costs $45 and is good for one year. Town building permits are also available on this website under "Forms & Permits."
Once you complete the town permit and mail it to the clerk with your check for $45, you may go ahead and begin building. You do not need to post a copy of the town building permit.
If you are building a new residential dwelling you will also need to contact Fred Weber, the building inspector. His number is listed under "Contact Info" on the left. Click here for more information on Wisconsin's Uniform Dwelling Code.
