A DEMOLITION permit is required when any building is being razed or removed in its entirety from a lot. A MOVE permit is required when you are relocating a building to a new lot or different section of the existing lot.

The purposed of a demolition/move permit is to ensure that the lot is clear of debris and hazardous material and that the utility connections have been removed or sealed.

For structures 25 years and older which have demolition permits, this website lists those applications
