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:  http://www.maine.gov/dps/bbcs/

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. 

Inspections are generally conducted between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm on normal business days.

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).
