Zoning is performed to manage the use of land with the municipality. The regulations state what type of business or structure can be built in certain areas, as well as characterstic of the building. Through regulating the land uses the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton tries to create the best possible development of its community.
Building permits are required to begin construction of a building project. A building permit is required in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public. It does so by providing the means for the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton to ensure the necessary officials review the project design and to inspect the construction for minimum standards as required by the building code and by-laws.
A building permit is required for new construction, additions, alterations, renovations, relocations and repairs or rehabilitation of a building or structure. Some minor repairs do not require a permit.
