Building Permit Approvals (Commericial Development)
The Fire Marshal’s Office works in conjunction with the Cromwell Building Department for permit approval. A copy of the plans and a plan review form must be submitted to the Fire Marshal’s Office at least 30 days prior to the start of the project. A sign off from the Fire Marshal on the review form is needed prior to the Building Department’s issuance of the permit(s). There are no fees associated with the submission of the Fire Marshal Plan Review form.
