If you cannot draw plans or are not familiar with code requirements, please seek professional assistance before applying for a permit. Plans are reviewed in the order in which they are received.
Once the application and plans are accepted, they will be reviewed for compliance with all applicable building codes and zoning ordinances. For commercial plans, a plan review fee will be calculated at this time and will need to be paid before the review process begins.
