Construction Projects

The Town of Clear Lake's Zoning Administrator is available by appointment only. Appointments can be made by calling Town Hall at 260.495.9158 (leave a message if necessary) or emailing zoning@townofclearlake.org. 

It’s never too early to see if a project you are considering at the lake meets the standards of the Town’s Unified Development Ordinance. Generally, the town requires an Improvement Location Permit (ILP) for decks, fences, sheds, generators, concrete work, new structures, and other projects involving modifications to existing structures or driveways.


Upon TOCL issuing an ILP, the homeowner/contractor is responsible for obtaining a Steuben County Building Permit - 260-668-1000 ex 1250 

Update Owners Contact Information


Please be sure to keep current your owner information by contacting Town Hall if you have moved or other important phone numbers or information has changed. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.
