What Building Permit Do I Need?
If you own a single or two-family home, you should apply for a residential permit. If you are doing renovations or new construction of a single or two-family home, you may need more than one permit such as an electrical permit or an HVAC permit. Visit our residential permits page to learn more.
Any building other than a single or two-family home is considered a commercial structure according to the building code. View the different types of commercial permits. Many of our building permits begin in the Zoning Department. After Zoning approval, you must submit an application to our offices separately to be issued a building permit.
