WHICH PERMIT APPLICATIONS DO I NEED FOR MY DEVELOPMENT?

There are various types of permit forms necessary for different types of development.  ​

Here is some guidance in what type of form is needed.

DOES YOUR DEVELOPMENT INVOLVE GROUND DISTURBING ACTIVITY?  If yes, you will need the Instruction Sheet and Land Use Development forms.  

ARE YOU BUILDING A STRUCTURE LARGER THAN 220 FEET?  You will need a Building Permit.  If the building has electrical, sewer or water, you will need a building permit no matter the size of the structure.  

WILL YOU BE DRILLING A WELL OR USING WATER OF THE RESERVATION?  You will need a Well/Water Use Permit.

WILL YOU BE INSTALLING AN ON-SITE SEPTIC SYSTEM?  You will need an Information Sheet.  

ALL DEVELOPMENT REQUIRES A WASTE DISPOSAL PLAN.  

ARE YOU A TRIBAL MEMBER NEEDING A WELL AND/OR SEPTIC SYSTEM?  You will need an IHS Sanitation Form.  

DO YOU NEED A 911 ADDRESS?  You will need the 911 Address Form.
