As stated on the previous pages permits are required for all work except grass cutting in the parkways. ALSO, SOME WORK THAT REQUIRES A DUPAGE COUNTY PERMIT REQUIRES A REVIEW AND A TOWNSHIP ROAD DISTRICT PERMIT/BOND. *Certi-Bonds Or Performance Not Accepted Cash or Check Only 

Projects requiring County Building Permits but exempt from Township permits and/or bonds are:

  • Satellite Dishes
  • Alarm Systems
  • Signs (except large billboards)
  • Electrical/Plumbing work

If the permit is for a room addition, shed, etc. we will issue a permit with a $1,000.00 fee for a construction bond. The bond is fully refundable after the project is completed and no damage has been found in the Township road right-of-way. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to apply for the refund of bond money.

Should there be any damage to the ditch, the shoulder or the road that is not corrected, we will make repairs and deduct the cost from the bond.

Under no circumstances is the Township Road pavement and /or Road Right-of-Way to be used for dumping of material.

Any time work is done in the parkway or street in front of the property a permit is required. Examples are tree planting, driveway installation or driveway replacement. It is important that the Road District be notified at least two weeks prior to the scheduled date of driveway improvements. The drainage ditch and condition of the existing culvert will be evaluated. In some instances the Township will need to do ditch work or culvert replacement and to avoid having a newly paved driveway disturbed, this should be completed before any driveway improvements have started.  (Click here for Driveway Specifications)

Driveway lights and sprinkler systems cannot be installed in the parkway. They should be installed within the confines of your property. Damage to unauthorized installations is the complete responsibility of the homeowner. Unauthorized work may be removed and charges for the work assessed to the homeowner.


As of March 1, 2022 township permits are to be submitted online electronically. Permit applications are available online here.
Paper submissions will no longer be issued in office. We will have staff available to assist with the process, if you need help please call (630) 231-8850.
