Building Permit Durations/Extensions
Building Permit Duration
Building permit expiration dates shall be determined based upon the scope and nature of the project for which the permit is sought, as follows:
|Type of Permit||Permit Duration||Extension Time Limit|
|Roof||30 days||30 days|
|Driveway||60 days||30 days|
|Pool||9 months||4 or 5 months|
|Interior Remodel||9 months||4 or 5 months|
|Substantial Remodel (50% or 3,000 sq ft or more)||12 months||6 months|
|Addition||12 months||6 months|
|Substantial Addition (3,000 sq ft or more)||18 months||6 months|
|New Structure||18 months||6 months|
|New Structure (6,500 sq ft or more)||24 months||6 months|
If the project is not listed in the chart above, the City Administrator will determine the expiration date for the permit. Once the permit expires, it shall become null and void and be of no further force and effect unless an extension is acquired.
An extension may be requested for up to one-half the time of the original permit, but in no case more than six (6) months. Permittee must pay a penalty in the amount of 25% of the original permit fee for each month of the requested extension. Additional work time beyond the extension requires a secondary permit and City Council approval.
