The Building Inspection Department reviews and inspects all new construction and remodeling within the City. All building permits and licenses are issued from Building Inspections, as well as Certificates of Occupancy. In 2008, the City issued 4,949 building permits valuing over $117.8 million.
A building permit is needed for any new construction, remodeling, sprinkler systems, plumbing, heating, fence, deck, shed, in ground pool, or mobile home set-up. See our Permit Requirements for Common Home Improvement Projects: A Homeowner's Guide.
