Our Approval process starts when you submit an application along with any supporting drawings (if required). Your application and drawings go to our Plans Examiner. After the exam of the plan is complete, the information is all input into our database, you will receive notification of Plan Approval /fees via email or fax. You will receive a list of required inspections when you receive your Approval(see Approval for further instructions). Approval fees depend on the type of project. Approval must be paid for AND issued prior to commencement of construction.
After you receive the Approval, during the construction phase, you or your Contractor MUST contact the Building Department at least 24 hours prior to any inspections that are required. We will work with you to help your project be successful and meet all code requirements.
