How do I apply for a building permit?

Different processes and approvals are required for different types of permits. If you are not sure what type of permit you are requesting, speak with one of the Development Services Technicians and they will help you identify the type of permit required.

Many permits require more than just building department approval. The planning department, engineering department, fire department and other agencies may also need to review and approve your permit application and plans.
