1 HOUSE Guidelines for planning the construction of a house PERMITS Building permits are required for all houses or additions. Houses and additions are required to meet the land use requirements of our zoning codes. Zoning questions should be directed to the planning and zoning department. This is an important first step in the planning of any housing project. PERMIT FEES, PLAN RE- VIEWS, AND INSPECTIONS Permit fees are established by the building inspector. The plan review is also done by the building official in order to spot potential problems or pitfalls that may arise. The inspector may make notes on the plan for your use. Inspections are performed at various stages of construction to verify code compliance. Actual permit costs can be obtained by calling Linwood s Building Inspector with your estimated construction value. REQUIRED INSPECTIONS (Verify with Building Inspector) 1. Footings. 2. Foundation. 3. Rough Plumbing. 4. Rough Heating/Fireplace. 5. Framing. 6. Sub-floor Depressurization. 7. Insulation. 8. Sewage Treatment System. 9. Final Plumbing. 10. Final heating. 11. Building Final (Certificate of Occupancy). 12. Other (As may be Required). SETBACKS Setbacks from property lines vary depending upon where your home is located. Homes located within one thousand feet of lakeshore will most likely also require an Anoka County permit. See setback information sheet included with this package. This is also an important first step in the planning for any housing project. LINWOOD TOWNSHIP Typo Creek Drive N.E.

(C) The 11,000 square foot buildable site must be located on the lot or parcel of land within the front, rear, and side yard setback requirements. (D) The 11,000 square foot buildable site must be clearly delineated on the certificate of survey together with the locations of the dwelling, the garage, the well, the sewage treatment system sites, and any accessory building. Accessory buildings must be located within the 20,000 square foot buildable area but need not be within the 11,000 square foot buildable site. (E) Subsequent to the effective date of this ordinance, building permits will not be issued for any construction on lots or parcels of land created after such date which do not conform to the above requirements, whether created by metes and bounds subdivision, platted subdivision, or registered land survey. (F) Variances from the requirements of this subpart (12) may be granted in cases where it can be shown that the potable water supply and the sewage treatment capabilities of the subject property are such that the property can be used as proposed without harmful or adverse effects on the health, safety, and welfare of occupants of the subject and adjacent properties, on the subject and adjacent properties themselves, and on the health, safety, and general welfare of the community as a whole. All other variance requirements of this ordinance must also be met.
