When don't I need a permit?

You do not need a permit to paint a house (interior or exterior), hang wallpaper, replace cabinets and do similar finish work, build an accessory building having a floor area of 120 square feet or less, install concrete sidewalks and patios entirely on your property or insulate an existing building where no structural changes are made.

If you have questions about whether you need a permit for the project you have in mind or to see if it meets zoning requirements, contact the West Fargo Building Department at (701) 515-5390 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday.
