Building & Zoning
Town Building Department is responsible for the administration
and enforcement of the State of New York Building Code, along
with relevant town ordinances. The department’s role is to
ensure public safety through the permitting process and
demonstrate compliance of the structural and safety requirements
of the State Building Code.
The department is responsible for the issuance of all building
permits for residential and commercial structures within the
town. The department handles all permits related to electrical,
plumbing, heating and air conditioning and demolition. That
process includes the review of plans for technical compliance
with the NY State Building Code, and the inspection of the
project during various phases of construction.
The issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy or a Certificate of
Compliance at a project’s completion is a property owner’s
assurance that the construction performed substantially meets
the structural and safety requirements of the State of New York
Building Code and the Town of Goshen.
Permits are required for any owner who intends to construct,
enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy
of a building or structure, or to move a lot line that will
affect any existing building or structure, or to erect, install,
enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any
electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation
of which is regulated by the code.
