Building Safety

The City of St. Cloud helps ensure construction of safe buildings and protects community character through zoning laws and building code regulations. The Building Safety Department administers these laws through permits and inspections. When you as a homeowner build something in St. Cloud or change the way you use the home or property, you may need to obtain a permit.
