[ARCHIVED] Fast Track Permits for Decks and Detached Carports

Introducing Fast Track Permitting for Decks and Detached Carports

Save money and time on your deck, detached carport or similar detached structure project with our new Fast Track Permitting. This new feature allows you to choose from pre-designed plans with no engineer or architect required. Simply use one of the fillable forms on our website 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.

Eligible Deck Projects

Deck projects up to 14 feet high that do not have multiple levels may use this feature. Decks under 30 inches tall, measured vertically from the walking surface to the grade below and within 36 inches of the deck's edge do not require a building permit.

Eligible Carport Projects

Detached carport or similar detached covered structure projects up to 20 feet by 20 feet with maximum interior height of 10 feet may use this feature. The 10 foot height limit does not include the roof height of the structure.

We will soon be launching fast track permitting for covered porches and 1-2 car garages to help our budget minded builders access simple, pre-designed plans for these common projects.

If you have any questions about Fast Track Permitting, please contact Ask the Development Center.
