Permit Issuance

The Montgomery County Building and Codes Department issues permits for the County Jurisdiction only-(area located outside of any city jurisdiction).

Prior to permit issuance, a site plan review or other approvals may be required, such as evidence of proper sewage disposal method.

Permits are issued from 7:30-4:30 Monday through Friday-except legal holidays.                                         

Permits must be issued to the property owner or licensed contractor. Permits must be paid in full by check or cash at the time of issuance.

At the time of permit issuance each applicant is provided a checklist indicating the required inspections, along with the information on how to make the request. You must have your Application Number to request an inspection.

Building Inspections

The adopted codes require that all work must be inspected at specific intervals during the construction process by a certified building inspector. It is the Building Permit Holder’s responsibility to request inspections and receive proper approvals from the Building and Codes Department prior to moving to the next phase of construction. At the completion of the project, after ALL final inspections have been made and approved the permit holder can request at that time a Certificate of Occupancy form to authorize Use and Occupancy.

Adequate Facilities Tax

Adequate Facilities Tax is collected at The Montgomery County Building Codes Department. Adequate Facilities Tax receipts and/or exemptions are required to be submitted to the Clarksville City Building and Codes Department prior to the issuance of any building permits in either jurisdiction. This is a one-time fee due prior to obtaining residential building permits.

Codes Enforcement

The Codes Enforcement Officer is responsible for enforcing the Montgomery County zoning resolution and the International Property Maintenance Codes which can be found here.
