JAMESTOWN – Jamestown’s Department of Development says all non-essential construction projects must cease in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Officials say construction may only continue if it is deemed vital to the health and safety of building occupants.

“This policy applies to all construction projects regardless of funding source and regardless of construction type,” said officials in a press release. “This policy does not include private home owner/property owner who is the sole person performing the work to their own private property, however, projects that require a permit to be obtained by the Building Code Enforcement Officer will not be permitted unless determined to be a non-essential emergency and necessary to protect health and safety of the occupants or public.”



Those with questions are asked to contact the City of Jamestown Code Enforcement Offices at 716-483-7541.
