Department Services:
The Building Department is here to assist you with meeting all requirements of adopted State Building Codes for construction work.  We are here to protect the safety of the community by reviewing your plans, issuing permits, and inspecting the construction.
 We issue permits for both Residential and Non-Residential properties, Certificates of Occupancy for New Business Tenants, Day Cares,
Home Businesses, and Residential Care Facilities.

Residential Construction:
Permits are required for Building, Electrical, Plumbing and HVAC work.  Permits are also required for construction and/or placement of sheds, decks, swimming pools, roofing, siding, windows and doors, etc.  A Permit Application can be obtained by clicking on the permit link above or stopping in.

Non-Residential Construction:
The City of Euclid Building Department is a State of Ohio Certified Building Department. Our work is guided by the rules of the Board of Building Standards for plan reviews and approval. A General Permit application is required with plan submittal.  If you need additional information regarding these requirements, please contact 216-289-2700 x 3904 for Commercial projects and 216-289-2700 x3907 for Residential projects.
