Why do I need a building permit?
On average, a person will move or change place of residence 11 times during their lifetime. Buildings, therefore, become the permanent face of the city. By having qualified individuals review building plans for structural integrity and safety, and inspectors monitor construction, we are helping to ensure that all structures can be utilized for many years to come. Our building inspectors help to negate unsafe construction and ensure public health safety and welfare.
