Building Department’s General Permit Application Process:

When the Building Department receives an Application (General Permit Application to be used for every project), the process starts.

  1. The application needs to be complete – all pertinent information needs to be submitted (see Permit package (project-specific) for work being done).
  2. A pre-site inspection is scheduled with the Applicant/Contractor.
  3. After the site inspection, a plan review is done by the Building Inspector.
  4. Once the Application has been approved, a Permit will be issued.
  5. We will call for Permit pick-up when ready.
  6. Permit cards should be posted, and work may begin.
  7. The Applicant/Contractor should call in for all inspections.  This will be discussed at the pre-site inspection.
  8. Once the final inspection has been completed and passed, a Final Certificate will be issued.

Please note:  A Certificate of Occupancy fee is required, if applicable.
