DEMOLITION PERMIT POLICY AND APPLICATION SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS
Any property owner or authorized agent who intends to remove or demolish a building or structure, or to cause such work to be done, within the jurisdiction of unincorporated Fremont County, must first obtain a Demolition Permit from the Building Department. The following is a list of the documentation which is required to be submitted prior to issuance of the Permit:
- Proof of ownership (a copy of the recorded deed may be obtained from the County Clerk and Recorder).
- If applicant is not the owner, a notarized written statement from the property owner granting permission to remove or demolish the building or structure.
- A completed Demolition Permit Application, including utility company sign-off.
- A written plan for the demolition describing method and equipment to be used.
- A demolition schedule.
Demolition permits are valid for one hundred eighty (180) days and are not renewable. Permit applicant is responsible for ensuring that all required inspections are completed prior to commencing or proceeding with work. The work of demolishing any building shall not be commenced until pedestrian protection is in place where required. The vacant lot shall be filled and maintained to the existing grade. Provision shall be made to prevent the accumulation of water or damage to any foundations on the premises or the adjoining property. Demolition Permits are issued for the purpose of demolition or removal only and shall not be used for the purpose of new construction except bracing, shoring, or temporary support for the building or structure which is being demolished or removed.
