Thinking of Adding a Deck To Your Barrie Home? Hit Up One of These Workshops First

City of Barrie Walking Residents Through APLI, Online Application Suite

Barrie City Hall is touting its online permit system ahead of a spate of home reno workshops in town.

The City is holding a series of drop-in sessions at a variety of home improvement stores in the city. Stations will be set up at each session designed to walk home owners through the permit process on a variety of common renovation projects like decks, sheds, pools and secondary suites.

The sessions expect to educate on the entire process, including how to complete a permit application online through the City’s APLI (applications, permits, licenses, and inspections) service; the portal provides 24/7 access to apply and pay for building permits, and you need not even put on pants to do it.

The reno workshops take place at the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday, April 24, 10am-2pm: Lowe’s, 71 Byrne Drive
  • Friday, April 26, 10am-2-pm: RONA Home & Garden, 61 Mapleview Drive, East
  • Monday, April 29, 9am-1pm: Home Depot, 10 Barrie View Drive
  • Saturday, May 11,11am-2pm: United Lumber Home Hardware, 520 Bayfield Street
  • Friday, May 24, 9am-1pm: Simcoe Building Centre, 140 Ferndale Drive, North
