Development Applications, Forms & Fees

Here's how we’re trying to make permitting and plan review easier for you and safer for our community 

If you need to discuss a permit for a project of limited scope like Decks, Basement Alterations, Minor non-structural Interior Alterations, Wall Signs, Sheds (less than 256 square feet), Fences, Home Occupations, or Occupancy Permits, we’re now open for Walk Through Wednesdays by appointment only. You can also make appointments to discuss other projects:
