The Town of Bennett recently implemented a new system for  processing Building Permits, Contractor Licensing and Planning Applications, such as Rezonings, Final Plats, Final Development Plans, Site Plans and Conditional Use Permits.  

You must first create an account. If you are an existing contractor please email bennettbuilding@bennett.co.us to obtain an access code, this will allow you to link your existing license and permits to your portal.
