Building, Zoning, and Conservation Clinics

In order to help small property owners with their construction projects, the City of Quincy Inspectional Services Department offers instructional clinics for Quincy homeowners who are interested in applying for building permits.

The clinics are held every Thursday afternoon from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Inspectional Service Department, located at the DPW Complex, 55 Sea Street. There is no fee for the clinics and no appointment is required. Homeowners will be seen on a first come first serve basis. Department staff will be available to answer questions concerning building, zoning or conservation issues. We can arrange to have an interpreter available if required.
