The following are the permits that the Building Division issues:
A building inspection is the process where a Building Inspector inspects structures during construction for compliance with state and local Building Codes.
A plan review is a detailed review of construction drawings submitted by an applicant for compliance with state and local Building Codes prior to the issuance of a building permit. A plan submittal and review is required in most cases. Contact the Building Division to see if your construction project will need plan review.
The first step, before doing anything else, is to check with the Planning Division to determine if a Precise Plan of Design approval is required for your construction project. If the Precise Plan of Design is required, you will need to complete this process before submitting a Building Permit application. If a Precise Plan of Design is not required you may submit your application to the Building Division.
Building permits fee’s vary depending on the type and complexity of the project. If you would like to find out what the Building permit cost will be for your construction project call us or e-mail us and will be glad to give you a cost estimate.
