Plan your project well by learning all about the permitting process, including how to research permits, file appeals, and get inspections.
Visit the Permit Service Center once you've determined the types of permits you need. Schedule an appointment and get estimates of how long the permitting process takes. Apply for, access, or research permits online, or schedule an inspection. Calculate the different types of fees that apply to your project. File an appeal to the City Council or Zoning Adjustments Board on zoning and land use decisions. Learn about the zoning requirements around residential additions and accessory dwelling units (ADUs).
