All building permit applications must be submitted electronically via our Permit site. The type of work you are doing will determine the required submittal documents. If plan review is required you will be notified that plans are required. Check your spam/junk email if you do not see the email in your inbox. Please use our step by step instructions and allow 8-10 business days for review of your residential building plans. If your submitted documents require corrections, it may take longer. When the review is complete, you will be contacted by email with the remaining fee total. Permits must be approved and paid in full before any work can begin.
Permits are usually required for the following: New Buildings; Additions (bedroom, bathroom, basement finish, family room); Residential Work (deck, porch, garage, fence, fireplace, pool, water heater, water softener, furnace replacement); Renovations (garage conversion, basement finish, kitchen expansion, siding, roofing); Electrical; Plumbing Systems; HVAC/Mechanical Systems (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems).
Inspections are performed to check for building code compliance. When a permit is issued, a list of required inspections will be attached. Do not cover work that may need inspection. If you have questions or need to schedule an inspection, contact Building Inspections at (952) 953-2588.
