The Permit Process
Permits are issued by the Development Center located on the first floor of 809 N. Broadway. This location is convenient to many public parking garages, and City bus lines. Before you come downtown, you might want to see if your project requires a permit or perhaps does not require a permit. The easist way to get started is to bring a written plan of what business activity you will be doing in the structure. The more details your provide the more accurate the answers will be as to what is needed to comply with all the related building and zoning codes.
The Plan Exam and Permits Section is managed by the Department of Neighborhood Services.
