Building Information

  1. Commercial Buildings

    If you are constructing a new commercial building or remodeling an old one, a permit will be required.

  2. Decks, Gazebos & Pergolas

    Learn about the construction requirements for decks, gazebos, and pergolas.

  3. Erosion Control

    Eroding construction sites are a leading cause of water quality problems in Wisconsin. For every acre under construction, about a dump truck and a half of soil washes into a nearby lake or stream unless the builder uses erosion controls.

  4. Fences

    Fences must be inspected by city staff for location, height and building materials standards. Inspections may be requested by phone 608-825-1184 or see the Inspection Request page for more information.

  5. Garages/Sheds

    When newly constructing a shed or garage or when adding on to a existing garage, a zoning permit and building permit are required. These buildings must be built in a similar style and with similar materials to the principal building.

  6. New 1 & 2 Family Dwellings

    As daunting tasks go, building a new 1 or 2 family home is certainly up there on the list. Permitting is the 1st official step and can be one of the more confusing ones. The City of Sun Prairie would like to try and make this portion of the process a little less stressful.
