The city requires a permit for an extensive list of indoor and outdoor projects, with fees based on the cost of the project. Even though obtaining a permit may seem cumbersome, it actually protects the property owner. Having a building permit ensures that a project meets minimum code and safety standards that protect people and the building itself. Also, having a permit will potentially protect the property owners in the face of a potentially destructive lawsuit or when dealing with insurance companies.
For property owners who use a professional contractor for a home project, the contractor should obtain the necessary permits. However, the property owners is ultimately responsible for making sure the project has the proper permits.
Contractor License Applications
Licenses must be turned into the city either in person or by delivery (mail, FedEx, UPS, etc.) Faxed or e-mailed copies WILL NOT be accepted.
