Palatine Village Hall will begin relocating on Wednesday September 24, 2014 and continuing until Friday September 26, 2014. We anticipate being open in our temporary location on Monday September 29, 2014. Our temporary location will be 150 W. Wilson St. Palatine IL. This will be our location for approximately one year.

During this relocation period we will have limited access to permit files/information. It is most likely that we will not be able to do much in the way of building permit processing during this time period. Therefore, if you have any critical scheduling that requires you to pick up permits or drop off permit information we recommend you do so prior to September 24th or after September 29th at our new location.

Effective, January 1st 2013, the State of Illinois adopted the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code. The Law requires all new commercial and residential construction for which a building permit application is received by a municipality or county to follow a comprehensive statewide energy conservation code. Renovations, alterations, additions, and repairs to most existing commercial and residential buildings must follow the Illinois Energy Conservation Code.

The Law requires design and construction professionals to follow the latest published edition of the International Energy Conservation Code which is currently the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standard 90.1, 2010
