In general, a permit is required for most construction projects where something is being built, repaired, replaced or remodeled. You do not need a permit for projects where only painting, wallpapering, and/or carpeting are being done.
General Building applications may take up to 10-15 business days to process. Do not pay until an application has been approved.
