Building Permitting, Plan Review & Inspection

Building permitting and inspection ensures that all construction undertaken within the city complies with established minimum construction standards. Such oversight maintains public safety standards within our buildings and keeps property values high. Building Division personnel will review construction plans, issue all applicable permits, and conduct building inspections before approving and issuing certificates of occupancy.  Building Division Documents

Sign Regulation
Sign regulation helps to maintain and enhance the city’s aesthetic environment and our ability to attract sources of economic development and growth. It also provides for a desirable and attractive living environment through harmonious signage.

Property Maintenance Ordinances
Property maintenance ordinances ensures that buildings and properties within the city are properly maintained. Those with an appearance which has a blighting effect on a neighborhood are required to be repaired and restored to good condition.

Building Permits

As of May 9, 2017, permit applications and fee payments will no longer be processed over the phone.  Permits can still be applied for online.  All permit fees will need to be paid for at City Hall at the time of permit pick up.  
Roof Replacement
As of July 1, 2017, the building division will no longer require permitting for residential roof replacement jobs unless there is structural repair or major mechanical/electrical /plumbing work involved.  Roofing contractors are still required to have a current business license and jobs will be spot checked for this.  Please remember, all roof replacement jobs are still required to be done in compliance with the current adopted building codes.
