Building Permits: Requirement Guides
All permits must now be submitted in a digital format. We are in the process of revising our information sheets below to reflect this requirement.
To facilitate the approval of a building permit application, we strongly recommend that you review the requirements for your construction project as so enumerated on the flyers available below, and make your submission digitally.
Please choose the applicable flyer for your specific project(s). Please note that the following list of requirements may not reflect all documents and items required for permit review and approval. We are also in the process of revising them to include the digital requirement. During the review process, there may be additional items and documents requested by staff. Also, the permit may require permits from other local, state or federal agencies and you will be notified of these requirements during the permit review process.
Permit Tips - Reminder: All permits must be submitted digiitally as noted above.
