An important duty of the City of Noble is to issue building permits and conduct building inspections. Building permits are required for new construction, renovations, and many other activities. Some activities that require a building permit may include, but are not necessarily limited to:
- The installation of an electrical, gas distribution, or plumbing system;
- The alteration, construction, enlargement, removal, relocation, or repair of an building or other structure that includes plumbing, heat & air, and electrical improvement;
- The construction or repair of any off-site improvement within that area defined by the Noble Comprehensive Plan; or
- The installation of any air-conditioning, heating or refrigeration system, or the subsequent modification of existing systems. System shall not be deemed to include window units or free standing units that are installed merely by use of electrical plugs.
If you are in need of a permit, you need simply to print the Application for a Permit to Construct Revision 2018 form and bring it to the Noble City Hall.
Almost every project which is approved by the cith through the granting of a building permit is subject to inspection by the city building inspector. The number and types of inspections will vary greatly depending on the project (a storage building would be subject to fewer inspections than a new home, for example).
Contractors should be aware that the City of Noble has adopted the residential and commercial versions of the 2006 International Codes. These codes will be enforced for any and all construction projects in the city starting on May 17, 2010.
