Frequently asked questions

Question: Do I have to get my lost resurveyed if I already have pins? 

Answer: Property lines will require verification by a licensed surveyor prior to building permit submittal. That does not always mean a survey is necessary. If the property was created by a record map or had a previously recorded survey, the surveyor will only need to certify the existing pins. If a pin is missing, they'll reset it and file a corner record with the county. 

Question: What am I required to do with my septic if I plan to rebuild? 

Answer: You are required to have your septic evaluated by a Town-licensed evaluator to make sure it's om compliance with the Town municipal code. It's best to have your system evaluated prior to building. Visit the TownofParadise.com to find a licensed evaluator. 

Question: What does my property need to be zoned to have a livestock animal permit? 

Answer: AR-1, AR-3, AR-5, RR-1, RR-2/3. RR-1/2, TR-1, TR-1/2 and TR-1/3. You can find out the zone designation for your property by entering your address in the interactive zone map HERE
