Submittal Guidelines:

  • All Commercial Permit Submittals Must Follow our Commercial Electronic Submittal Guidelines.
  • All building plans must be drawn to 1/4" scale or larger.
  • No Commercial Permit Applications can be submitted via email at this time, please submit in person or via USPS, UPS, FedEx, or any other carrier of your choice.
  • Upon issuance of a Building Permit, the responsible party will only receive an electronic copy of their approved plans. However, it is up to the responsible party to provide a PAPER copy of all approved plans, construction documents, and the permit card onsite for the inspector(s). The paper copy must be printed to scale and must have the County Approved Stamp on the plans. If this requirement is not met, you will be subject to a failed inspection and fees may apply.
