Building Commissioner

The Inspectional Services Department is responsible for the administration of the State Building, Electrical, Plumbing & Gas and Mechanical Codes. The goal of the Department of Inspectional Services is to insure that the minimum standards of the State Building Code are upheld. The State Building Code controls the construction and use of all buildings and are all about the public’s safety in buildings.

All construction and use related permits are issued through this office. The permitting process starts with a plan, an application, followed by a review time, then the issuance of the permit. Once the permit has been issued inspections are done by various applicable inspectors. Once all inspections have been successfully completed, a Certificate of Completion or Occupancy can be issued.

These responsibilities also encompass the interpretation and the enforcement of the Norton Zoning Bylaws. This office works in harmony with all departments specifically the Fire, Planning, Conservation, Assessors Departments and Board of Health.
This department is one of the leads in assisting in future development and welcomes new proposals and plans.
