Building Permits allow the City to protect the public by reducing the potential hazards of unsafe construction. By following code guidelines, buildings will meet minimum standards of safety and will be less likely to cause injury to you, your family, or future owners.
Instead of looking at the building permit process as a nuisance, it's better to see it as a service provided by your local government. Objective, trained plan-checkers will examine and approve your building plans. Experienced inspectors will ensure that work is up to standard. Any corner-cutting or poor workmanship by a contractor will come to light.
