The Village of Oregon will only be accepting permits for one and two family dwelling unit(s) after the builder (or owner) has completed the required State online permit. The Online Building Permit System was developed by the Department of Safety & Professional Services (DSPS) to allow municipalities to gain compliance with 2015 Act 211.  This includes if you are applying for an early start permit.  The owner, builder, or agents shall complete the application form.  PLEASE NOTE:  You only have to complete this step if it is a NEW ONE OR TWO FAMILY DWELLING UNIT(S)!
After completion of the online form you must submit your plans and other required information to the Village of Oregon Building Inspection (SAFEbuilt) Department as has been done in the past.  Any questions please call the building Inspector at (414) 639-6314.
