Building Permit Application Checklist and Building Permit Impervious Square Footage Form

Attention: See below regarding new application submittal requirements to accommodate the Stormwater Utility Program


A multi-department City staff team completed an evaluation of the City's building permit process specifically focusing on ways to prevent unanticipated expenses and delays for matters mainly occurring after permits have been issued.

The evaluation resulted in the creation of a Building Permit Application Checklist, which City Council supported for implementation. Individuals applying for building permits must complete and submit a Building Permit Application Checklist before a permit application will be accepted.
