Building Permitting: Building permits are how your local government ensures that building and structures are built in compliance with the adopted building codes.  The purpose is to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare through structural strength, means of egress facilities, stability, sanitation, adequate light and ventilation, energy conservation, and safety to life and property from fire and other hazards attributed to the built environment and to provide safety to fire fighters and emergency responders during emergency operations.

Our friendly and helpful Permit & Licensing Technicians are available to assist you with your permitting needs Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
