A building permit is required for all newly erected structures within city limits. Please complete and return a Building Permit Application to City Hall before building or placing any new structure on your property.
The total permit fee is calculated at $2.00 per every $1,000.00 of the cost of construction.
All new structures must be within your property setbacks as set forth in the Zoning Regulations. To know your setbacks, find which zone your property is located in (see above map) and see that zones subsection of the Zoning Regulations.
Please submit your application at City Hall or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once approved, a Code Enforcement Officer will inform you of the total cost of the permit and any other conditions that may apply. All fees must be paid at City Hall.
