Building Department

The Building Department for the Town of East Haven enforces State of Connecticut Building Codes. The Building Official stringently adheres to those codes to ensure the safety of all those who live in the Town of East Haven. The Building Official's goal is to make certain that construction within the Town meets the highest possible standards. The Building Department maintains files for all buildings within the Town, issues permits, inspects all phases of construction, and offers information to assist the residents and contractors. Through the Building Official's efforts, a safe environment is maintained townwide.
