If you are planning to remodel or finish all or part of your basement, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 7-10 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.
