When Your Permit Is Issued
Once your permit has been approved, you will be contacted by mail. You will then need to come in to the P&DS Center to pick up your permit and pay any fees due at the time of issuance (some fees must be paid before a final inspection can be completed).
If you would like to keep track of your permit status, check the Construction "Permit Status Report" in the related links section.
Once you pay your fees, you will receive your permit packet.
During construction, be sure to follow the city's noise ordinance.
Post Permit Onsite
Your permit packet will include your plans, inspection record cards and a placard. Post the placard onsite where it is visible from the street, facing the right-of-way. City approved plans must be kept on site at all times, during all phases of construction.
Click on the "Inspection Scheduling" link for more information on scheduling an inspection.
Before your project is considered complete, you must pay all outstanding fees. If there is a landscaping requirement for your permit, that work must be completed, as well.
Check the Construction "Permit Status Report" to find out what fees are due on your project.
Once your permit is final, you will receive a letter of completion in the mail.
You will also receive a certificate(s) of occupancy if your project involved new residential work or tenant finishes (not tenant remodels). Some projects may receive a letter of completion rather than a certificate of occupancy. You may not occupy your new building/area until after you receive your certificate of occupancy or letter of completion.
