All new construction and most work done on existing buildings in the Village of Athens requires a permit. However, you should contact the code enforcement office before commencing work of any kind to be sure you have the proper approval.
In addition, Planning Board approval is required for exterior improvements or modifications within the Historic District, site plan reviews and subdivisions.
Also, all electrical work requires a licensed electrician! Contact the code enforcement office for a list of such individuals.
