    The Department of Building is responsible for the Enforcement of the Local Ordinances of the Village of Ossining (and all applicable County and State Laws). These laws regulate the use and occupancy of private land and structures for the purpose of securing the public safety, health and general welfare through structural strength, stability, means of egress, adequate light and ventilation, and safety to life and property from fire and other hazards. This is accomplished by the building department following certain procedures which include:

                          Processing of Building, Electric, Plumbing, Tree, and Demolition permit 
                           applications and
     Certificates of Occupancy.                                      

                          Plan review

                          Building inspections

                          Construction code enforcement

                          Backflow prevention program


    The department coordinates its programs with other departments and agencies of the Village, County and State governments, and also with private agencies that have similar responsibilities, including among others, the New York Board of Fire Underwriters, the American Standards Association, the American Society for Testing and Materials, the National Fire Protection Association and Underwriters Laboratories.


    Village ordinances and inspections enforced by the Department include, but are not limited to, the Village of Ossining Zoning Ordinance, the Outdoor Signs and Awnings Ordinance, fire inspections, housing code, Section-8 inspections, parking inspections and sanitation code.  State Laws enforced include the Building Code, Residential Code, Fire Code, Property Maintenance Code, Mechanical Code, Fuel Gas Code and the Energy Conservation code.  The Village of Ossining is an active participant in the New York State Building Officials Conference. The Building Department will continue to help address the quality of life and safety issues that affect the Village of Ossining residents and property owners.
