What requires a Building Permit?  
Building permits are required for construction that exceeds
$2000 in value (materials and labor).  The following activities
are excluded from permitting:  Any activities exempted under
the Maine Uniform Building and Energy Code (MUBEC)
(IBC, Section 105 or IRC section R-105); painting; and
landscaping activities not part of projects or developments
requiring site plan review. (Amended 6/12/12) 
MUBEC Information:

Permits are also required for:  subsurface wastewater disposal,
internal plumbing, electrical, excavation, signs, culverts, and
temporary location of structures within sidewalks. 
For the state's plumbing permit fee schedule click here.

Site plans are only needed for changes in footprint. 

New construction should include a front view and floor plan.

Permits are usually processed within a week. 

This is a general guide to permitting.  Applicants must comply
with all requirements of the Zoning Ordinance. 

It is the responsibility of the property owner to obtain all
necessary state permits (Permit by Rule, Fire Marshal) and
federal permits (Army Corps of Engineers).
