How much does a building permit cost?
Building permit fees vary depending on the cost of the project, inspections required and plan review costs. Some projects will also require a right-of-way deposit that will be refunded once the project is complete and the curbs, sidewalks, and parkway are restored to their original condition.

The basic permit fee is $100 or 1.75% of the value of the job, whichever is greater. Additional fees may be added for electrical and plumbing work, plan reviews, and parkway deposits. Since permit fees are not determined until after the permit is approved, permits must be paid for upon pickup and not before.
