Permits 1-2-3 Program

An Innovative Approach to Building Permits

The Village of Mundelein’s Building Department is proud to introduce the 1-2-3 Permit Program--a more streamlined and simplified permit fee structure for all building permits. This program aligns permit fees with the size of the project, thus making the permit process easier to understand for the customer and more cost-effective to administer by the Village.

The fee structure is all inclusive, meaning permit calculations for electrical, plumbing, fire, and plan reviews are now all included in one fee per square foot for new construction, alterations and additions.

This new innovative permit program ensures that Mundelein’s permit fees are priced competitively and that the permit process is customer-focused and customer-friendly.

The Building Department also established set fees for smaller projects, now called “minor” and “standard” permits that are either $35 or $70 depending on the size of the project. We have a new brochure to explain this program to our customers. Special thanks to Building Director Pete Schubkegel and his team for all their work to launch this innovative approach to permits in Mundelein.
