Dock and Shoreline Structure Permits Procedures
A boathouse

Docks and shoreline structures require building permits for construction. Dock related structures include boatlifts, boat davits, boathouses, fishing piers, boardwalks and mooring pilings. Shoreline related structures include seawalls, riprap rock revetments and other erosion control structures. Dredging is also permitted through the same procedure. Questions regarding the dock and shoreline procedures can be answered by an Environmental Sciences staff person.
