Building Permit Process for Residential One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Accessory Structures

In order to provide a timely but comprehensive code compliance review, complete construction plans and specifications are needed. Incomplete plans and specifications delay permit processing. Please see One- and Two-Family Dwelling Building Permit Application Checklist for a list of requirements.

We will review your submittal plans for completeness at the time of permit application and give you a Residential Plan Submittal Checklist.
