How do I know if I need a Permit?

Generally, you need to obtain a building permit whenever you construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, remove, improve, convert, or demolish a building or other structure. A building could be anything from a tool shed to a house. A Building Permit may include building, grading, plumbing, mechanical and electrical permits. If you have a question about permit requirements for your project, you can refer to our checklists and guidebooks, under Residential or Commercial Building Permits.
