Obtain an Improvement Location Permit
Improvement location permits are required any time you plan on improving your property by constructing new structures (such as new homes, outbuildings, garages, etc.). Permits may also be required when modifying existing structures (such as your home or business).
To determine if a permit is required for your project, contact the Area Planning Department (APC) at 765-584-8610. You will be asked where the property is located (the city and township) and what the property owner wishes to do on the property.
90% of the time the Area Planning Department prints out an aerial view of the property from the Randolph County GIS system to review setback requirements and other factors.
Area Planning will ask if the permit is for an addition, structure, pond or manufactured home over 23 feet in length. If so, you will be directed to complete Form #103 APC.
If for a swimming pool, completion of Form #105 APC is required.
If for a single wide manufactured dwelling, completion of Form #104 APC is required.
APC will explain the setbacks from property lines for the zoning district where the property is located, and verify that all setbacks meet APC regulations and show on aerial view where structure and/or additions/alterations will be located.
APC is required to take the form and a drawing of your proposed project to the Randolph County Surveyor's Office to verify that any structure will be 75 feet away from a legal county ditch. Once approved by the APC and the Surveyor's office, you will be required to obtain a building permit from the Building Commission.
The modification to your property may also require a permit or approval from the Health Department for a septic system. If located within a city or town, you may be required to have a sewer tap permit or approval from that city or town.
