Apply for and manage your permit
Below is a list of the construction-related permits that the City administers. These permits are grouped in the order you are likely to need them.
- Start your project here - these are the permits that you will need for most projects. Not sure if you need a permit at all? See the pages When you need a permit and When you work without a permit.
- Get these permits next - these are permits you need for most types of projects, but you typically need one of the core permits (development, development-building, or building permits) first.
- Trades and system-specific permits - these are permits for specific systems such as electrical and plumbing.
- Other permits - these are the kinds of permits you need once your project is just about finished.
