  • a new accessory building
  • an addition to an existing dwelling, accessory building, or manufactured home
  • any interior work such as partitions, etc.
  • a sundeck, porch or roof

How long does it take to obtain a permit?

Permit applications are received on a first come, first serve basis. We are committed to a 3 to 5 week processing time period for complete applications, dependent on seasonal levels of construction and development.
