New online permit guide makes building a fence, shed or deck easier
Are you a Moorhead resident who is planning a shed, deck, fence, or pool project at your home? Are you a Minnesota licensed contractor preparing a garage, deck, fence, or pool plan for a Moorhead client? The City of Moorhead has just made it easier to identify required permits and standards to see if proposed projects meet City Codes.
The City’s new Online Permit Guide is available to help residents and contractors determine if a project is possible for residential lots in Moorhead.
This tool combines standards in the Moorhead City Code with the 2020 Minnesota Residential Building Code to assist users with project planning. The Online Permit Guide can help avoid any surprises when it comes to proposed projects and make the process of obtaining a required permit seamless. Check out the Online Permit Guide at Building Codes or Planning and Zoning.
If you have questions about the Online Permit Guide or about building projects in general, call the Building Codes Division at 218.299.5424 or the Planning and Zoning Division at 218.299.5370.
