Online Building Permit System

For the convenience of both property owners and contractors, the Town of Clinton employs an online permit system which is accessible via the Town website .

Using that system, you may apply for a building or trade permit, attach supporting documents and/or check the status of a permit.

Before applying for a permit, you should review the Building Department web page to see what documentation is required. Please scan and attach supporting documentation with your completed application. Provide as much information as you can on the form because incomplete applications may cause unnecessary delays.
