What is required for a building permit application?

Different projects require different information. In general, 1 set of digital detailed plans and referral department information (submitted electronically) is needed. If land use approvals are necessary, proof of that approval will be required in every case before a building permit will be accepted. Submittal requirement checklists are available online, at the Community Development Department public counter or refer to our permit application manual.
