If you are planning to add an addition to your home, or do a remodel to all or part of your home, you are required to submit for and obtain a building permit and inspections.
Please be aware that dumpsters and construction materials must not create an obstruction to the public.
Permit fees are based on the square footage being finished, but are not charged until all plan reviews are completed and approved (see Fee Calculation Form). Permit fees pay for reviews in the office as well as inspections which will need to be done at the property.
Submit signed application and plans to the Building Department by email at email@example.com. If your plans are too large to email, please provide a shareable link to where we can download your plans from such as Dropbox, Google Drive or other online service.
Plan review will take approximately 10-15 working days, after which we may call with corrections that will need to be made to your plans. After the plans have been approved, we will email an invoice with permit fees. Payments for permits costing more than $1,000 may be made by phone, 801-446-5323, with an electronic check. Payments of $1,000 and less can also be made with a Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express.
Additions/Remodels vary in the inspections that are required. See Required Inspections – this will give you a list of the possible inspections that may be required for your project. If you are not sure which inspections apply to your project, be sure to contact us. Call the Building Department at 801-446-5327 at least one business day before you wish to schedule each inspection. You may ask for an hour block of time when there will be an adult to meet the inspector at the property. When the work is completed and all inspections are approved, be sure to keep the plans, permit and inspection reports with your house records.
