Building Department

Mission and Purpose


The Building Department oversees the issuance of permits, registration of contractors, inspection of buildings, as well as enforcement of the Zoning and Property Maintenance Codes. We also guide all parties through our design development process. 


Our mission is to promote, improve and protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Village of Bratenahl through an effective code enforcement program and provide the highest level of compliance to ensure structural integrity, health/sanitation, fire protection, adequate light and ventilation and other essential life safety elements in the built environment.

Our purpose through our property maintenance code is to establish and ensure standards to protect our housing stock from blight and deterioration. We inspect properties and assign responsibilities to property owners with respect to sanitation, repair and maintenance.

We strive to achieve our mission with a maximum goal in service and efficiency.
