Electric Vehicle Charging Expedited Permitting Checklist
Ordinance Code

Simple residential permits such as re-roofs, minor interior alterations, wood stoves, water heaters, HVAC and electrical service panel changeouts do not require more than a detailed description of the work, a floor plan, a plot plan of the area affected, or the manufactures installation manual.  In many cases a permit for these simple residential jobs can be obtained over-the-counter on the same day of your visit.  However, new construction projects, additions, alterations, structural changes, patio covers, decks, and other structures or situations with unique requirements will require a plan submittal.  

When applying for a permit, the following information is required to complete the permit application:

  • Detailed description of the work
  • Location of project (street number and name or Assessor’s Parcel Number)
  • Legal owner’s name, address, and phone number
  • Contractor's license number
  • Valuation or job cost of the proposed work
  • Building construction plans

Only the property owner, licensed contractor, or an authorized agent representative of the owner or contractor can sign for the building permit.
