To get through the permitting process with minimal delays, you need to submit applications that are complete and compliant with city and state requirements. This includes submitting all required forms and documentation, in a format that can be easily understood.
Locate the Documents You Need
To assist you, the City has developed a Resource Center with a section specific to building and remodeling. In the center, you will find information such as:
Application forms, checklists and reference materials
Links to building codes and other standards that apply to your project
Lists of documents you need to submit with your application
Descriptions of the information to include within your documents
Examples of complete and compliant documents
Be aware that many projects require more than one permit. Building projects may require a building permit (a number one permit), sub-permits for plumbing, electrical and mechanical work, and permits for exterior work such as grading and excavating.
