Permits are required for new buildings, remodeling, additions to your home, and improvements to your property. For example, a new room or patio cover, a factory-built or masonry fireplace, a swimming pool or spa all require a permit. So does a landscape irrigation system, a new air conditioning unit, a new furnace or water heater, or any other change or repair made to an existing electrical, mechanical, or plumbing system.

A permit is required to enclose a carport, to convert it into a room or a garage, build a fence higher than 6'8", or build a storage shed if it is over 200 square feet of floor area or if it is attached to the house. If you are not sure whether you need a permit, please call the Community Development, Building Development Division before beginning work on your project.

How much does it cost for a permit? 

The fee for a building permit depends on the type and size of your project. For many simple projects you will pay a minimum flat fee. For new buildings, room additions, patio covers, and garages, the fee will be based on the square footage. You may call the Building Development Division and ask for an estimated permit fee.

How much time do I have to complete my project? 

Your permit will remain valid for 180 days from the issued date. Once you start work and pass your first inspection, your permit will remain valid as long as you continue to work and call for, and obtain, approved inspections. If you stop work on your project for more than six months, your permit will expire. So if you run into unexpected problems with your project, or problems that interfere with your project, such as serious illness, or loss of income, please let us know. Your permit may be extended free of charge, or renewed for a fee, depending on the circumstances. However, if you let more than one year pass without any contact with us, then a new permit will be required. New plans must be submitted and the full fees paid as if it were a new project.

The permit specialists process all applications submitted for construction permits, route all plans submitted to the various departments for plan reviews, compute fees for construction permits (including plan review, development and impact fees). Perform plan reviews for residential remodeling, swimming pools and spas, detached accessory buildings and structures, manufactured homes, signs and fences. The permit specialists also assist the general public with interpretations of adopted City codes and ordinances.
