Building or Construction
If you are building a new addition or building a new home on your lot, make sure your permit is filled out properly and approved by Town Council before you start. You will need to know the location of your property pins in order to meet the setback requirements as this is the property owners responsibility. If you are developing a new lot requiring sewer and water, you may need to pay a Sewer Impact Fee prior to starting your project.
Whenever a building shall be constructed or moved within the town limits, the front face of such building shall be constructed in line with the front face(s) of the adjacent house(s) in the block within which such building shall be constructed or moved or within 10 feet of a curb, a sidewalk or the property line which is unencumbered by right-of-way easements, whichever set-back is greater. Regardless of the foregoing requirements, no building or part of a building, such as steps deck or an overhang, shall be placed or constructed within 10 feet of the front or side lot lines or within 10 feet of the alley right-of-way.
If you are building a commercial building, you may have additional fees regulated by the State of Montana. Contact them at (406) 841-2056 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
