Building, Expanding or Renovating

A Building Permit is required for all new structures, additions, renovations, structural repair, and mechanical system replacement. Once the work is completed and inspected, a Certificate of Occupancy will be issued. Site Plan Review is required before you may build a new structure, add to an existing structure, construct a new parking lot, or expand an existing parking lot by 25% or more. The Planning Division reviews site plans to ensure that the proposed project meets the standards of the City’s Zoning Ordinance. An approved site plan will result in the issuance of a Certificate of Zoning Compliance, which will allow you to seek a Building Permit. Architectural Review is required for every new structure, addition, exterior renovation, and sign (excluding residential buildings containing one or two units)
