How do I obtain a permit?

Start by filling out a permit application. Permit applications are available at the Permit Center counter on the main floor of City Hall. You can fill out the application at City Hall or you may take the application with you to fill out later. Applications also may be mailed, faxed or emailed to you upon request. Applications are also available via Permit Forms in our Document Center.

Information you need to provide on the application includes your name, address, telephone number, description and valuation of the work being done. If you need help filling out the application, a staff member will be happy to assist you.

To start the review process, you need to submit a completed application and plans, and a submittal fee. You may submit the permit application in person or by mail.

Once a permit is ready, you will be called at the number provided on the application. You then pay for the permit at that time and take it with you, along with the approved plans and the inspection card that details what inspections are required.
