When building within the unincorporated parts of Comal County, there are typically four permits from Comal County that must be obtained during construction.  The first is the On Site Sewage Facility (OSSF)/septic permit. Construction of the OSSF must commence within one year of the permit issuance.  The second permit required is the Floodplain Development Permit. If new construction is proposed in the designated flood hazard area, then a permit is issued to ensure compliance with the Comal County Flood Damage Prevention Order. Construction of the proposed improvement with the regualtory floodplain must commence within six months of the permit issuance.  The third permit is a Private Improvement in the Public Right-of-Way (PIPROW). This permit is typically obtained whenever the final driveway that attaches to a county road is installed.  A fourth permit may be required from the fire marshal for certain building construction or improvements.  Constructing improvements without the necessary permitting is typically a criminal offense.  — Thomas H.
