What Requires a Permit?
Please plan ahead!! Many permits can be issued the same day. Other permits (i.e. building, fence, pool, etc.) require review by one of our inspectors before issuance. Due to a limited staff and inspection hours, we encourage submitting all paperwork at least 1 week prior to the date you would like to start a project.
