The majority of building permits are processed with little delay. If plan modifications are needed, the deficiencies are based on a careful review of the proposed work to insure safe and sound construction. Permits that have been approved are to be picked up in the building department during office hours. Last permit is issued 30 Minutes before closing.
*** The permit placard must be displayed in your front window ***
*** An approved set of plans must be kept on the job site.***
Required inspections may include: Footings (prior to pouring of concrete), foundation/backfill, interior slab, smoke detector placement, rough inspections (electric, plumbing), framing, insulation, and final inspections for each applicable subcode area (electric, fire, then plumbing and building), and engineering, if applicable. Check with the Construction Official to determine which inspections are required for your project.
Once all final inspections have been performed and approved, you must fill out an application for your Certificate of Occupancy. Applications can be obtained from the building department. The certificate will be mailed to you.
*Smoke Detector Inspections: Please call the Building Department to schedule inspections (not Fire Prevention).
Building permits provide the means for Code Officials to protect the residents' health, safety, and welfare by reducing the potential hazards of unsafe construction.
