To find out if you need a building permit, call the Township
Office. For any project, please verify in advance if
a permit is needed. A building permit packet and checklist
explaining what is needed to apply for a building permit
is available at Castle Rock Town Hall.
Some examples of projects where permits are required:
- New buildings
- Additions (bedrooms, family rooms, garage, etc.)
- Residential Work (decks, pools, fireplaces, roofing,
re-siding, new windows, etc.)
- Remodel (basement finish, kitchen remodel, etc.)
- HVAC (heating, ductwork, air conditioning, etc.)
- Electrical (permit from State of Minnesota)
A building permit gives you legal permission to start construction
of a building project. Working with a building inspector
will ensure the project is built right, will be safe, and
will last. Safe construction practices help protect
you, your family, your friends, and your investment.
To receive a permit, an application for a permit must be
completed at the Town Hall. At the time of application, a
filing fee and a down payment for inspection must be paid,
and three (3) sets of site plans and building plans must
If the construction project is within County shore land/floodplain
jurisdiction, a permit is required from the Shoreland Administrator.
The building inspector will then approve the plan or state
which changes will need to be made before approval at their
regular meeting. After the plans are approved by the
Board, and all fees are received, the cleark will then release
the building permit, and the construction may begin.
Please call the building inspector (952-442-7520)
24 hours in advance to schedule the required inspections.
