Before commencing construction it is recommended that you contact the City Building Division to make certain that a building permit is required and for information on Building Division requirements for residential and commercial buildings including  new dwellings, additions, remodels, alterations, and repairs.

Additionally, before a building permit can be issued by the Building Division, information concerning zoning regulations must be obtained  from the Planning Division and adhered to for those projects requiring zoning clearance prior to a building permit being issued (new dwellings, additions, fences, decks, carports, garages, etc.)  Zoning regulations include but are not limited to minimum distances or setbacks from the property lines for buildings/accessory structures, fences/decks as well as maximum height restrictions.
