Permit Expiration and Renewal

All demolition and construction permits, except for fence, roof, dumpster, and grading permits, are issued for a 12-month duration, effective at the time the permit is paid for and issued. If construction work continues past the expiration date, a permit extension must be issued. A permit extension fee is charged at 1/12th the original permit fee for every 30 days after the expiration date. To arrange for an extension, please contact the Community Development Department at comdev@wilmette.com or (847) 853-7550 to verify the extension fee amount and to coordinate payment.

Fence, roof, tree removal, and dumpster permits are valid for 6 months from the date of issuance. Grading permits are valid for 18 months from date of issuance.
