Building Plan Review Counter Appointment
The Building Inspection Plan Review counter is now open by appointment only. To protect the public and our staff, we've made changes to the way the counter operates.
- The counter will only serve individuals who have appointments. Walk-in services are not available.
- Dane County Emergency Order 8 requires individuals to wear a face covering effective July 13, 2020 at 8:00am. Anyone entering the building needs to follow this order.
- Individuals are encouraged to wear their own face covering. Disposable masks will be available.
- If you’re unable to wear a face covering, we can arrange for an accommodation. Contact our office in advance at (608) 266-4551.
- The only public entrance to the Madison Municipal Building is on Doty Street. Once inside the MMB, we'll have signs directing the flow of foot-traffic.
