Building Permit Process

Step 1 - Application Submission
Completed applications and required plans are submitted to Community Development Department.

Step 2 - Review Process
The plan reviewer will determine if your project is in compliance with construction codes, zoning and City ordinances. A residential permit will typically be reviewed within 3 to 5 days. Commercial permits plan review usually takes up to 14 working days provided all information is provided and no corrections are required to the plan.

Step 3 - Permit Approval
Applicants will receive notification once the application has been approved. Upon receipt of the permit fee, the permit will be issued granting permission to legally start construction. You must proceed as approved in the review process.

You are required to post the permit in a window or other prominent place at the construction site and keep a copy of the building plans at the site for all projects.

You must bring any proposed changes to the attention of the building official immediately. Changes may require another review and approval in the same manner as the original application.
