Complete permit application forms for the proposed work and obtain owner and contractor original signatures to authenticate the applications. We provide free notary services at the Building Department. Please fully complete the information as required. Attach 2 copies of the plans and documents, submit the package to the Building Department and obtain a process number that will become your permit number. Sub-permit for electrical, plumbing, mechanical, etc., should be submitted at the same time. The engineer or architect of record will need to sign and seal all construction plans. Application packages for most common permit types are provided under the Permit application and Forms tab on this site, or at the Building Department.
