Permits: Why They Are Your Friend
Town of Chapel Hill Development Services sometimes hear that builders or homeowners think working without permits is a good idea because of the time and expense related to obtaining building permits. Please join a well-known local builder and Town staff who will put that concern to rest, and share with you all the long-term, less obvious benefits of permits. They will also address how to make getting a permit easier for builders in attendance.

Come Learn With Us:  “Permits: Why They Are Your Friend” is offered at noon Thursday, Nov. 16, in the Council Chamber of Chapel Hill Town Hall, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Welcome are builders, homeowners, realtors, and others to this short, informative, lunch-time event. Pizza will be provided. For more information, please contact or visit
