  1. Permits
  2. Inspections


Permits are required to construct, move, add to or structurally alter a building or other structure. A few examples of the types of work that require permits includes:

  • Driveway replacements
  • Fences
  • Generators
  • Irrigation systems
  • Storage buildings
  • Swimming pools

General Submittal Requirements

Application and two sets of site plan and plans for proposed work are required. Plans should be drawn to scale showing the actual dimensions and shape of the lot to be built upon; the size and location of existing buildings, if any, and the location and dimension of the proposed building or structure or alteration.

Some types of applications may require additional information.

Plan Review Timeline

The Building Inspection Staff review every permit application for completeness and compliance with the standards listed above. This process normally takes an average of 5 to 7 working days but can vary based upon the type of permit, quality of information submitted and the workload of the division.
