To apply for a building permit, you will need a building permit application form and a copy of your SIGNED contract with the contractor doing the work. You also need to sign and submit the minimum requirement sheet (two pages). Any job that will affect the “bird’s eye view” of your lot (deck, sidewalk, fence, addition, garage, etc.) will also require a copy of your Plat of Survey with the proposed changes drawn in to scale. For large jobs where plans must be submitted (additions, new constructions, renovations, etc) we require 3 copies of plans stamped by the architect. Any new construction, addition, or accessory structure 400 square feet or greater requires a topographical survey of both existing and proposed drainage conditions.
