The Building Division issues permits, reviews plans, inspects construction and enforces building regulations. Plumbing plan review and inspections are performed by Franklin County Public Health and not by the City. However, plumbing permit applications are required to be submitted to the City for review. Building contractors and residents can now apply, pay for and obtain their residential and commercial building permits online. If construction plans are required with the permit application, paper copies must be submitted after applying for the permit online. Please refer to the appropriate section of the City Code when completing an application.
Note: As part of a continued, statewide effort to help stop the community spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Gahanna’s Building Division will no longer be accepting walk-in customers. It is our priority to protect the health of our residents, and employees and their families, while continuing to provide necessary, quality services. Building division staff are working remotely and altering field operations to follow social distancing guidelines.
Customers will still be able to drop off plans, applications and any other necessary documents at a drop box located in front of City Hall; however, staff will be unavailable for walk-in services. A large majority of our services are available through our online permit portal on Gahanna.gov.
Contact us at 614-342-4010 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this evolving situation and look forward to continuing our work with you.
