Building Department

Due to the COVID-19 virus and the need for social distancing, The Newtown Building Department will remain open but residents are required to call for an appointment before coming to the municipal center. We will continue doing inspections on a limited basis.  Inspections on new homes and new commercial space will continue, in addition to all outdoor inspections. With the uncertainty of the days ahead this may change.

Feel free to call The Building Department with any questions at 203-270-4260.

John Poeltl Chief Building Official
