Building & Zoning
The Mission of the Wayne Building Department is:
- To promote public safety
- To enhance property values
- To lower homeowner’s insurance costs
- To keep fees within the Village to be used for the direct benefit of its residents
- To maintain Wayne as a desirable community
The Building & Zoning Department accomplishes these objectives by maintaining and enforcing an ISO-certified Building Code as well as carefully considered Zoning Code in order to ensure safe, code-compliant construction activities, structures and land uses.
The Department is here to serve the residents of Wayne, and invites any questions, constructive comments or suggestions you may have. They may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at Village Hall during normal business hours.
Below are links to resources to assist you in navigating through the Village’s Code and procedures.
