In general, building permits are required whenever a building or structure regulated by the State Building Code is constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, or converted to another use. Although there are some exceptions, most construction projects will require a permit. City staff can help direct you as to whether a permit is required. However, if you need specific code information you must contact Linn County Building Department at 1-541-967-3816 or
