The City of Preston requires building permits for many construction activities,
including but not limited to:
- Building or adding to a garage
- Garden/utility sheds
- House/building additions (any construction that adds to the footprint of the structure)
- Fences/retaining walls
Please call City Hall 507-765-2153 to check if your project requires a building permit.
Some planning and zoning questions (setbacks, permitted uses, etc.) may be easily answered by referring to the ‘Land Use’ section of the Preston Code. Click here to view the Preston Code.
The City of Preston has adopted a Floodplain Ordinance as part of a program that makes FEMA flood insurance available to our residents.
In order to minimize future flood losses, the floodplain ordinance closely regulates construction activities in the floodplain. It is strongly suggested that property owners contact city hall before starting any project in the floodplain.
