Building Permits

The City of Newport requires review for building permits for new construction, remodels, fences, paving, decks, and other permits with structural changes.

Permits such as replacing existing windows, roof, siding, and HVAC can be issued upon payment.

All permits will be issued to the licensed contractor doing the work or the homeowner if they are doing the work.
