The Building Department of Bogota is a regulatory agency which licenses trades, permits construction and demolition, and inspects buildings for structural safety, occupancy, and zoning issues.


Building complaints about maintenance (e.g., paint, leaks, rodents, etc.) should be directed to Property Maintenance Department and/or the building owner, the Department of Housing, Preservation, and Development.


For your convenience we have posted all the necessary forms, code books and information to help you prepare to do any type of construction work in our town.

Building permits provide the means for Code Officials to protect residents by reducing the potential hazards of unsafe construction thereby ensuring the public health, safety and welfare.
