Pull a Permit

A building permit must be pulled through our permit portal, CommunityCore, through the city's Building Division, which is operated by SAFEbuilt.

City Hall is closed to the public until further notice. All permits must be pulled online. All other services are operating as normal.

Pulling a Permit
The plan review fee is required at the time a permit is submitted so the plan review may begin. The city accepts Visa, MasterCard, check or cash.  A payment portal is now available to pay directly through CommunityCore. 

Timeframe for Building Review
  • Residential: Five to seven days
  • Commercial job less than $2 million: 10-13 days
  • Commercial job greater than $2 million: 21 days

Needed Plans
For typical homeowner projects, two sets of plans are required for a permit.

Each set should include:
  • A site plan
  • A floor plan
  • A section view, if needed
The site plan shows where the proposed construction will be located, including lot dimensions and all existing structures. A floor plan shows the use of the space, any framing proposed and its dimensions. A section view shows how the structure is attached to the existing building.
