Building Permits

Building Permits Photo Residential 3-18-13

Whether you are building your dream home or a new commercial structure, the city's Building Permit Department can guide you through the process. Current state mandated building codes have created a maze of requirements and standards. Our building permit personnel can explain and simplify the process. Our goal is to help make this seemingly cumbersome process as painless and enjoyable as possible.

In order to ensure quick and efficient service, please submit all items on the checklists when  you come in to apply for a permit.

Inspections are conducted between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Inspections must be requested 1 business day in advance.
