Construction in Sweetwater County
All residential, commercial, industrial and mineral construction and use in the unincorporated areas of Sweetwater County requires an approved zoning permit. This includes construction of homes, oil & gas wells, residential and commercial shops, business offices, cell towers, compressor stations, mining operations, etc.
Permit applications can be found by clicking Application Forms in the list on the left side of this page. Most construction will require the completion of the Construction & Address permit application.
Any construction without the submittal of a permit application or before a submitted permit application has been approved may be subject to a Late Application Fee in addition to the required application fee.
