Do I have to pay for a building permit up front?

Yes, fees for a building permit and/or an adequate facilities tax are collected in full at the time of application.  Residential permits are based on $0.70 per square foot (includes living areas, attached garage, finished or unfinished bonus rooms, sunrooms, and finished or unfinished basements) along with a $5,000 Adequate Facilities Tax for new construction. Adequate Facilities Tax must be paid with a separate check. Effective July 1, 2019, Building Permit Fees will be based on the following:

  • All of the following will be permitted at a flat $100:
    • Above-ground pools
    • Utility permits
    • Signs
    • Porches
    • Decks
    • Patios
    • Accessory structures that are moved onto the property (prebuilt/prefab) and under 1,000 square feet
  • All accessory structures that will be built on-site and are over 1000 square feet will be permitted at a fee of $0.10 per square foot.
