Permit Services

Many simple 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 simple drawing of the area affected, and/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.  

Every Wednesday, through our ExpressTrak service, CDSA will review and issue certain building permits over-the-counter. Click the ExpressTrak  flyer to view more information.

There is no paper application to fill out. Your submittal will be processed and routed to all necessary departments, electronically, at the counter during your visit.


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 & 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.
