The Village of Riverside requires that all building and construction projects (including alterations, repairs and demolitions) that cost more than $500 obtain a building permit prior to work beginning.
When the work being done is cosmetic only, permits are not required. This includes painting, carpeting, tile work, refinishing hardwood floors, and sealing driveways.
Please contact the Community Development Department if you are uncertain as to whether a permit is required for a particular project.
