New Residences
Before construction on a new residence, it is necessary to complete a building permit  to determine building setbacks, maximum height, and other construction requirements.  For more information, please contact City Hall 573-594-6186. 
Adding to Existing Residences
Before designing an addition, it is necessary to complete a building permit to determine the building setbacks, maximum height, maximum building coverage, and other development standards. These are determined by the zoning code in which the property is located. You can determine what zoning code your property is located in by looking at the zoning map.
Remodels of existing residences are generally allowed, but may require a building permit. Remodels of existing residences to another use (i.e. commercial use) may be allowed in some zoning districts, but additional review and requirements may be necessary. 
Fences require a building permit.  For more information, please contact City Hall 573-594-6186.
