The Stark County Building Inspection Department

Building Inspection Department

The Stark County Building Inspection Department was created in 1967. The office issues building permits for new structures and structural changes to existing buildings. Permit fees are assessed on a square foot or unit cost basis. The department is responsible for enforcing the residential building code adopted by the Stark County Board of Commissioners and the Ohio Basic Building Codes for commercial structures.

The department's jurisdiction covers the unincorporated areas of Stark County and those villages and cities that have entered into a contract with the county. Currently, contracts exist with Brewster,  East Canton, Magnolia, Meyers Lake, Minerva and Waynesburg. The office also inspects commercial structures only for East Sparta, Louisville and Hartville since each of these jurisdictions have residential building departments of their own. Read More...
