Before applying for a building permit you must first determine if your project requires a Wildland Interface Permit. Cabins, homes, and recreational properties located near the base of the mountain, on the benches, or on the mountain usually fall into this category. Please visit the Wildland Urban Interface page for more information and to view a map of the zone.


No building shall be erected, constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, improved, removed, converted, or demolished unless a permit for each project has been obtained from the Sanpete County Building Department. Failure to obtain the necessary permit prior to beginning work will result in an investigation fee being added to the cost of the permit fee. The investigation fee will be the same as the permit fee, and you will still be charged for the permit. (Double Fee)   Notice: Please verify water availability and requirements when purchasing residential building lots in unincorporated areas of Sanpete County.
