Why are Permits required before projects work?

Permits are required before work is started in order to give the inspection personnel an opportunity to review the plans and correct any inconsistencies with the city codes before the work is started. Correcting errors after the work is completed is much more costly then correcting them on the proposed plans. Visit our Inspections and Zoning Information page for more information. For information about applying for a permit, please visit the Building Department Forms page.
