Permits are needed for building in Upper Mifflin Township. The blank forms are online below or can be picked up at the township office during office hours. For questions and to obtain the actual building permit and pay the required fees, contact Greg Alleman, Code Enforcement Officer, at 717.423.6306 (home) or 717.729.0491 (cell).

You need two copies of the Township Building Application Form. One is for your records and one is for the Township. PLUS you will need to choose between one of the two code enforcement agencies below and complete their respective application.
The two agencies the Township uses to do the actual code inspections are Pennsylvania Municipal Code Alliance (PMCA) and Commonwealth Code Inspection Service (CCIS). You may choose either one but it is recommended that you finish with the one you start with. There fees are the same.
Please fill out the Building Permit for Earth Disturbance form if any new earth disturbance will take place with your building project. This is separate from the Township Building Application Form and the forms from the different code inspection agencies.
