  • The permit application requires information about your construction permit. The address of construction must be provided, unless it is a new structure, along with the legal description for the property, the owners name, the contractors name, and architects name if applicable. The square footage of the new structure, including porches, patios, and garages must also be provided. Please submit two sets of plans, including a site plan, and any other documentation of the proposed work for review. To obtain an application please visit the Building Inspections office located at 505 Columbus Ave or download a copy from the "Links and Downloads" section on the right side of the page.
Review Process
  • During this process your application will be routed to different departments for their approvals (see flow chart). The normal review time for residential projects is three to five business days. For commercial projects the normal review time is five to ten business days. Permits for roofs, siding, and mobile homes in a park can be issued at time of application.
Issuing Permit
  • Once the permit has been approved by all necessary departments the permit is ready to be issued. The building permit is a document granting you legal permission to start your project. Upon approval of a building permit a permit fee will be collected. The permit fee is issued to defray the cost of the application process, and review and inspection of site. An inspection card will be issued to keep on site at all times, listing inspections required for the project. Changes will require a review and approval by building official.
