About Building Permits

Building permits are required for any new construction, alteration, addition or demolition of a structure in all SRD areas. Homeowners or builders should complete the appropriate permit application. Once a building permit application has been accepted, it goes through the stages of review before it is ready to be issued. The reviews typically include addressing, planning, zoning and building code compliance.
