If your project requires a building permit you must submit the zoning permit with the building permit application to Wood County Building Department. If you are unsure whether you need a building permit, please contact Wood County directly.  At this time, all residential permits are handled through the Village of Archbold and do not require Wood County Building Department approval.

For questions regarding applications, please contact Aaron Alt, Planning Director, at 419-446-2109 or email aalt@archbold.com.
