Permit Requirements

For the time being, the Building Division is not open to the public.  

Staff is working reduced hours on high priority permits.  Examples include air conditioning change outs or roof permits.  It could take several days to receive a permit.  

We will not be reviewing low priority permits such as fences for the time being.  We are conducting a reduced number of inspections.  We are no longer conducting interior inspections. We may be able to review videos or photos in certain situations. 

 If you have a high priority permit, please submit it to:
