Building Department

Through the full-time Building Inspector/Plan Examiner/Code Enforcement Official the Village of Pelham Building Department on a daily basis meets and consults with the owners of residential and commercial properties, and their builders and architects to provide advisement for the development of plans that comply with local and state codes for various types of construction projects and business uses.

The department also staffs the three Land Use Boards – Architectural Review, Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals – and coordinates with the Village Administrator’s and Clerk's Offices to see site plan, special permit and other applications through the land-use processes.  The Board of Trustees holds final site plan approval authority, based on the report and recommendations of the Architectural Review and Planning Boards.  The Zoning Board of Appeals is a quasi-judicial Board authorized by New York State Law with appeals authority under the local Village zoning code, and makes decisions regularly on special permit, variance and other appeals applications.
