Welcome to the Boone County Building Department homepage. Through building code enforcement, we're making a difference in our community. The primary purpose of this department is to ensure safe minimum levels of construction through enforcement of the Kentucky Building Code and Kentucky Residential Code. This is closely followed by the enforcement of the Boone County Zoning Regulations, which provides for orderly growth of our community.
***ATTENTION - Effective Monday, June 1st we are now open to the public. We like to remind everyone to practice social distancing when you are in the building. Wearing a mask is not mandatory in all departments but please advise the signs that are located throughout the building. We still offer a drop off bin located next the elevator on the 3rd floor if all you need to do is drop off a permit. We will still accept electronic submittals only if the project does not need Zoning approval and it's not a big file. Thank you!
***EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY ANY PROJECTS SUBMITTED AFTER JANUARY 1ST, 2019 WILL BE REVIEWED UNDER THE 2018 KENTUCKY RESIDENTIAL & BUILDING CODE***
***OUR OFFICE WILL CLOSED ON FRIDAY, JULY 3RD FOR THE HOLIDAY***
