The City has adopted a comprehensive set of building codes that must be followed on construction projects within the City. These building codes govern structures' design, construction, alterations, and maintenance. Building codes establish the minimum requirements to safeguard the building's occupants' health, safety, and welfare. The permitting process is designed to allow the City to ensure that work complies with the building codes. It also allows the City to ensure that contractors working in the City are properly licensed.
For new construction, the City charges a permitting fee. In response to large-scale events such as a tornado or a flood, the City will often waive all permitting fees.
