Permits are required for any owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical, or plumbing system; including lawn sprinkler systems connected to the City water system.

Most permit applications require the submission of plans to be reviewed and approved for code compliance. Our turnaround goal for residential permit applications is 5 working days and 14 working days for commercial permit applications.
