Building & Zoning Department

The Building Department is here to help you with zoning and building codes, permits to improve your home and property.  They are also here to make sure that ordinances and property maintenance codes are enforced.  If you are opening a new business you need to contact the Building and Fire Departments for inspection and certificate of occupancy.

The Cheviot Building Department employees have recently retired, which prompted the City to look for a company to assist us with these needs.

The City has gone with National Inspection Corporation. They can be reached at 888-433-4642 for any questions pertaining to building codes, permits, etc.

Building permit applications should be dropped off or mailed to Cheviot City Hall, Monday thru Friday 8am-3:45pm.  Permits can also be emailed to [email protected]. Cheviot City Hall will then send permits to NIC and once returned to Cheviot, you will be contacted when permit is available and the cost due. Payment will be made to the City of Cheviot.
