Each project has its own requirements. Before you start working on your project, you may wish to call Building Permits office. City employees will explain the process you must follow, what documents you will need and whether your project will require plan review. Larger projects are subject to more complex regulations and will require a longer plan review process. The extent of review required will depend on the use, occupancy, type of structure, location and possibly other factors.
