WEST HAVEN, Sept. 4, 2019 — The Building Department will continue to accept building permit applications on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-11:30 a.m., Mayor Nancy R. Rossi announced.

The overwhelming success of the new hours has prompted city officials to extend them through Friday, Nov. 29, said Planning and Development Commissioner Fred A. Messore, who manages the department.

In early May, the Building Department began opening an hour earlier twice a week to meet the needs of contractors and building owners, Messore said.

Rossi said she appreciates the department’s building official, Frank Gladwin, and his staff keeping their hours adjusted to better serve contractors and building owners.

The mayor said the schedule change has allowed people to obtain permits earlier on Tuesday and Thursday mornings while also providing a more business-friendly approach to helping contractors and promoting economic development across the city.

The Building Department also accepts building permit applications on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9-11:30 a.m.

Department officials will continue to conduct all inspections and administrative duties until 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, Messore said.
