Building Department

The Building Department oversees all building permit applications for new construction and renovation. The services provided include plan check review, building permit issuance, inspections, and maintaining historical records related to issued building permits.

City Hall is open to the public by appointment only. Please schedule an appointment for all building permit requests. All new building permit requests will need to be submitted in person with hard copy plans. Any previously submitted electronic permits that have not been approved will need to be converted into hard copies for review and approval.
