Building Board

The Village of Maple Bluff’s Building Board is comprised of three appointed and three elected residents tasked with reviewing building and remodeling projects that impact the exterior appearance of properties within the Village of Maple Bluff. The Board’s “design review process” focuses on specific criteria established within village ordinances ( and must be performed before a permit can be issued. Prior to Building Board consideration, projects are reviewed by village staff to ensure compliance with zoning ordinances and assess potential impact on village infrastructure. As such, only detailed and complete applications can be routed for Building Board review.

Not all building and remodeling projects require Building Board approval – some minor exterior projects may be “administratively approved” while interior work may simply require Building Inspector review prior to permit issuance. To determine what approvals your project requires, and what materials you need to submit, please visit the links below.

The information will guide you through the Building Board, administrative approval, and/or permitting process and further direct you to the documentation you will need to submit for project consideration.

Upon submission, your project will be routed to appropriate village staff for review. Staff will contact you directly if additional materials or clarifying information is necessary, but we respectfully ask that applications be detailed and complete to expedite the review process. Staff will notify you at least one week prior to the Building Board meeting that your project is, or is not, on the agenda. Projects must be presented by either the property owner or their representative to be considered by the Board and, pending an approval decision, staff will forward the determination to the Building Inspector for permit processing and issuance.
