Our authority commences with an initial plan submittal in the permit application process and ends upon the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy by the Chief Building Official. Within this time frame, the task of the Building Regulations Department is four-fold:

  • To regulate new construction and renovation by enforcing established minimum requirements for premises, structures and mechanical equipment; facilities for light, ventilation, heating, cooling and sanitation; and safety from fire, structural collapse and other hazards to a safe and sanitary existence.
  • To administer the issuance of contractor registrations as an aid to insuring a minimum standard of competency for individuals and companies that work within the jurisdiction of the County at specific building trades.
  • To provide a program of flood damage prevention by teaming with the Lucas County Engineer’s Office in establishing a comprehensive plan for development within the boundaries of the Federally designated flood plain areas of the County.
  • To encourage economic development within Lucas County by coordinating efforts with associated County departments and other governing agencies.
  • Mission Statement

    The mission of the Lucas County Building Regulations Department is to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Lucas County through diligent enforcement of adopted codes pertaining to residential and commercial construction and flood damage prevention.
