Construction Permit

When building, remodeling or adding onto your home or business, a construction permit is generally required. During the planning stage of your project and before you begin construction, call or visit the Construction Department. Your permit application will be customized based on the type of construction you are planning.

Contractor Requirements

To protect the homeowner, be sure contractors are registered with the division of Consumer Affairs as a Home Improvement Contractor. They will have to show a registration card from the State before any permits can be issued.
