Building Department

Ensuring properties are constructed and maintained according to building and zoning codes is our primary mission. Our building administration responsibilities include issuing permits for construction, demolition, and occupancy. We also issue and monitor contractor registrations and licenses

This department serves all properties within the City of South Bend, and those with a 5-digit address within St. Joseph County.
