What's a Building Permit?
A building permit gives you legal permission to start construction of a building project in accordance with approved drawings and specifications.
Why do you need a Permit?
Your home or business is an investment. If your construction project does not comply with the codes adopted by our community, the value of your investment could be reduced. Property insurers may not cover work done without permits and inspections.
