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.

  • All permit applications must include two copies of submittal documents
  • Permit fee is paid at submittal
  • Download Daily Inspection Schedule. The inspection log (pdf file) is posted daily and provides a list of scheduled work for the current, normal business day.
  • Check status of plan review. The application number should be in the format “13-1234” (two-digit year, hyphen, four-digit serial number).

Corrections will not be accepted if there are any disciplines pending review. Partial corrections will not be accepted for plan review. All disapproved trade's comments must be addressed and submitted together when bringing in corrections.

The Building Division will require a copy of the executed contract for the work to be performed at the time of permit application. This requirement will help facilitate the calculation of the required fees per state statute 489.127(4)(c).

Projects that require major trades (building, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and roofing) must have the sub-contractors signed on prior to any initial permits being issued.
