The main purpose of the Building Department is to protect public health, safety, and general welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of buildings and structures in the Village of New Paltz.  Enforcement is enacted through the issuance of permits, notices, and orders, inspections, and the issuance of certificates.  Through local and State regulations, we can ensure that your project is constructed to meet the minimum requirements in accordance with current New York State Building Codes.  These codes are based on minimum requirements to safeguard the public safety, health, and general welfare of our community.
