How to Apply for a Permit
Please take a look at your application before applying. Here are some key items that will be required on the application:
- Address & Parcel ID
- Project Value (total cost of construction, labor, and materials)
- Description of Work
- Project Owner/Project Manager (including contact information)
- Contractor Information (General, Electrical, Mechanical, and Plumbing contractors)
- Signature of owner, contractor, or project manager
STEP 1: APPLYING
Please choose the application that applies to your project based on the description of work. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Plans and a completed application are required at the time of submittal.
STEP 2: THE REVIEW PROCESS
After the completed application and necessary documents have been submitted and reviewed, the applicant will receive a review sheet from city departments with comments for adjustments to be made before the permit is issued. Plans must be re-submitted and re-reviewed after any necessary changes are made. Please be aware that it is possible for this process to be repeated until all aspects of the plans are approved by every department.
STEP 3: FEE ASSESSMENT
When the permit is approved, fees will be assessed on a project-by-project. Fees are assessed by individual departments and then combined for a permit fee total. The permit fees will be due at issuance for each permit.
STEP 4: INSPECTIONS REQUIRED
After the fees have been paid and the permit is issued, you may begin construction. Inspections are required to make sure the integrity of the structure is safe throughout the stages of construction. IT IS THE PROJECT MANAGER'S RESPONSIBILITY (the owner and contractor) TO SCHEDULE INSPECTIONS AT EACH STAGE OF CONSTRUCTION.
