Fast Track Permitting
Save money and time on your deck, detached carport or similar detached structure project with our new Fast Track Permitting. This feature allows you to choose from pre-designed plans with no engineer or architect required. Simply use one of the fillable forms to design to your specification, then submit with your building permit application. A completed form serves as your submitted plan. Please note that a site plan is still needed with your permit application.
Schedule a Virtual Meeting or Inspection
Know who you need to see and how we can support you?
Use the Customer Meeting Menu to:
Choose staff from different areas of expertise as you need, and
Decide if you would like that staff person to make a site visit, or write you a letter.
The length of your meeting and associated fees will depend on the complexity of the project and the number of staff you'll need to see.
Fees will only be charged for the services you request.
Meeting fees will be credited toward your development application as long as you submit your permit application within 12 months of the meeting date.
A virtual inspection allows the inspector to remotely view the site using a webcam controlled by the inspectee.
To participate, you will need internet access and a portable video streaming device (like a smart phone).
Types of Virtual Inspections Allowed:
Water and furnace replacements
Footings and foundation additions
Re-inspection and final inspections
To schedule a virtual inspection, call (253) 798-2769.
