When you begin plans to construct a new building or remodel an existing facility, you will need to apply for a building permit from the Village of Weston.
A building permit serves as formal and legal permission to begin construction on a project. Once issued, the permit confirms that project plans for a new structure, addition, renovation, foundation, plumbing, air flow system, fireplace, deck, electrical, and other building components have been approved by the village and that plans comply with all mandated state and local building codes and zoning laws.
Please note: Failure to obtain a permit prior to commencement of work will result in a tripled permit fee per Section 14.2122(5)(g) of the Municipal Code. All Inspections must be requested at least the day prior to desired on-site Inspection date.
Onsite inspections with our Building Inspectors can be scheduled during the following days/times:
Monday: 9 am to 3:30 pm
Tuesday: 9 am to 11:30 am
Wednesday: 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Thursday: 9 am to 3:30 pm
Friday: Emergency inspections only
The Village processes all building permit applications online through the Evolve Online Software Suite for the Village and Town of Weston. Previous paper applications are no longer accepted. If you do work in other WI Communities, like Wausau, Schofield or Oshkosh who also use the Evolve Suite, you will need to create a new Weston specific login as the databases are different. If you need assistance with this, please contact the Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (715) 241-2613.
To get started on your application, please visit to apply. All applications submitted are reviewed for completeness before being reviewed and approved, so please be sure to look over each application carefully.
Most applications do not require payment at time of submission. Once the application is reviewed and approved, an invoice will be sent to you via email. Payments can then be paid online using a debit, credit, or E-checks, dropped off in person, or mailed in. Payments of check or cash (DO NOT MAIL CASH) can be made at or mailed to:
Planning and Development Department
Village of Weston
5500 Schofield Avenue
Weston, WI 54476
Please include the invoice number on your check or with your payment.
****Payments made online are subject to either a convenience fee of $0.50 for ETF (Electronic Transfer of Funds) transactions or 3.25% + $1.00 for debit or credit card transactions.
