Application for Building Permit Packet - College Township is part of the Centre Region Council of Government (CRCG). Most construction within College Township requires a Zoning Permit before going to the Centre Region Building Code Office. However, normal maintenance activities, such as painting, roof shingle/tin replacement, and other minor repairs do not require a zoning permit. Please contact the College Township Zoning Officer if you question whether permits are required.

Building Permits are a two-step process within the Centre Region Council of Government group. Step 1: Municipal Zoning Permit is required prior to submission to CRCG. Step 2: Submission to CRCG, Building Code Application is the Original Application and documents, with completed Zoning approvals, a copy of the Zoning Permit, and other documents as may be required by CRCG.
