Building Inspections

Our Building Inspections Division strives to assist the development process efficiently and with accountability to the community we serve.

What Requires a Permit?

Permits are required when building, remodeling, or enlarging a building. Permits are also required for other improvements to your property such as fencing, replacing a roof, plumbing, mechanical, or electrical work.

What Does Not Require a Permit?

Projects that are cosmetic in nature, such as painting, wallpapering, carpeting, cabinet installation, foundation repair, and trim work, etc. do not require permits. Additionally, permits are not required when replacing fixtures on existing wiring or plumbing.

PLEASE NOTE:   A digital copy is required in pdf format on a CD or flash drive for ALL Commercial and Residential New Construction & Remodel permit application submissions in order to conduct plan review.  All printed plans must not exceed 11 x 17.
