A Residential Zoning Permit is required for all new residential construction, additions, decks, awnings, patio enclosures or replacements. To apply for zoning permits electronically, visit the Online Permit Center. This is the quickest, most efficient way to get your zoning permit approved. If you choose to complete a paper application, a Residential Zoning Permit (PDF) application must be completed in full and submitted to the Planning and Development Department along with 1 set of architectural drawings (including elevations) and 1 copy of a site plan drawn to engineering scale (i.e. 1 inch - 30 feet) and the application fee. Typically the application will be reviewed in 1-2 business days and you will be e-mailed or notified by telephone when the application has been approved or if additional information is needed.
