New Home Builders and ACT 211
Builders applying for New Home Permits in the City of Neenah should not use the new state Electronic Building Permit System that other municipalities may be using, as our permit software interfaces directly with the state permit system. Instead continue using the Neenah New Home Permit application available online and email to firstname.lastname@example.org with all required plans and documents.
