Building Regulations

The Code Enforcement Office issues permits for any building activity that takes place within the city limits. This includes:
  • Carports
  • Demolitions
  • Fences
  • Moving a structure or mobile home onto or off of a lot
  • New roofs
  • New structures
  • Remodels
  • Signs
Permits must be obtained before work begins. Any contractor doing electrical, plumbing, gas piping or mechanical work is required to obtain a permit through the Code Enforcement Office. Contractors that are required to have a state contractor’s license are required to register that license with the City Code Enforcement office.

The cost of permits and city registration can be found in the land usage section of the City of Woodward Code of Ordinances.

Flood Damage Prevention

The City of Woodward regulates all building activity or development that takes place within any special flood hazard area which has been identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency on its Flood Hazard Boundary Maps. Development permits for these areas are issued by this office.


The city zoning map is kept on file at the Code Enforcement Office. We will be happy to help you locate an area on the zoning map and answer any questions you might have regarding the city's zoning regulations.

Subdivision Regulations

Our city subdivision regulations can be found in the land usage section of the City Code of Ordinances. Any new land developments or proposed subdivisions should be brought to the Community Development Office for review to insure that these regulations have been followed. Developers and builders can contact Community Development and we will be glad to assist them through the subdivision process.
