What is the difference between a zoning permit and a building permit?

The Village only issues Zoning Permits.  Zoning Permits cover adherence to the provisions of the Village Zoning Law…Generally speaking use, footprint, and within the Historic Overlay District, the outward appearance and materials used.

A Building Permit is issued by the County and makes sure the action is in adherence with the NYS Building and Fire codes. Generally speaking the County won’t issue a Building Permit without seeing that the proposed action meets Village Zoning.
