Requesting a demolition or removal of a building is a multi-step process and several steps must be satisfied before the application is accepted.
The request for demolition form is required for the demolition of a building or structure.
These are the conditions that must be met or agreed upon, and are outlined in more detail in the request form below:
- The water and sewer account must be closed and the final bill must be paid.
- The existing sewer lateral must be capped at the property line by the owner and inspected by the building inspections.
- The issuance of a demolition permit shall constitute an implied request by and permission from the owner of the building for discontinuance of the water service connection. As a courtesy, temporary use of the water service connection will be allowed for construction purposes only, if requested in writing.
- If the land disturbed exceeds 2500 square feet (Land Disturbing Activity (LDA) permit), or if any of the area is in a Chesapeake Bay Resource Protection Area (RPA), then the applicant must comply with the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Ordinance.
