Standard Permit Application Requirement
A permit will not be issued to a licensed contractor if the insurance on file expires within 30 days.
Things to Know:
- Drawings must be specific for the permit.
- Mechanical, Electrical, Fire Alarm, and Sprinkler System drawings will not be accepted with a building permit submission.
- Separate applications must be made for each permit type, and the required drawings must accompany each application.
- See this Bulletin for additional information regarding standard application requirements.

If project scope has been modified after a permit has been issued, an amended permit may be required. Please refer to the Amended Permit Bulletin for an outline of that process.
Commercial permits are required for all work performed on structures other than single or two-family dwellings. This includes multifamily buildings with three or more units and mixed-use buildings with residential units and commercial spaces.

PLI provides after hours, holiday, and weekend inspections, or "off-hour inspections", to accomodate customers. All construction projects within PLI's jurisdiction are eligible to request inspections outside of normal business hours and are subject to the process outlined in our Off-Hours Inspections Policy. Please read the policy and complete and off-hours inspection application.
