There are several types of projects zoning permits are required for, so it is always best to call the Planning Department at 419-354-6218 to inquire about your specific project. Examples of the types of items that need zoning permits include:
- Accessory buildings
- New houses
- Roof pitch changes
- Swimming pools, etc.
Permit fees ranges between $5 to $50 and a complete fee sheet is listed on the Planning Department Fees page. Permit applications are available in the office, on the Planning Forms page, via email or faxing 419-352-0443. A scaled sketch is required showing the proposed construction and measurements from all property lines. In some cases, the Planning Department might have a prior sketch that could be copied and the proposed new construction shown on the copy. Permit applications take about 7 days to process, and can be dropped off at the Planning office with the required fee and sketch or mailed to:
304 N Church Street
Bowling Green, OH 43402
Also, your construction project may require a building permit, in addition to a zoning permit, from Wood County Building Inspection. The City recommends calling Wood County Building Inspection directly to inquire about a building permit at 419-354-9190.
