Starting a construction project? Check out the city’s permit wizard

Thursday, June 1, 2023 by Bob Sechler

If you’re considering a construction project and don’t know whether you need a permit, the city has you covered. Its “Do I Need a Permit?” wizard is designed to help you make that determination and find out whom you should contact. According to the city, the interactive wizard will help you do the following:

  • Identify if a permit or application is required from the Development Services Department
  • Determine the next step in the development process for your project
  • Determine the appropriate DSD staff to provide further assistance

The wizard’s results are based on user input, so the city advises people to verify them with city staff. To begin using the wizard, just click on the “Let’s Get Started” button.
