Building Permit Information & Applications
The Whitefish Building Department serves the public by creating partnerships with citizens and the developer, contractor, and business communities to accomplish mutually beneficial goals such as the safe, timely, and successful completion of projects. Rather than having an enforcement orientation, the department focuses on education, and strives to maintain a customer-service driven, problem solving orientation for the plan review, permitting, and inspection functions.
