Building Permit Instructions and Guidelines

This page contains helpful resources, numerous building guides, handouts, and how-to-guides to increase client awareness and knowledge regarding permit submittal requirements, County adopted codes, design criteria and Building Division policies and procedures.

Attention: Due to changes to Code and Design Criteria based on 2021 International Building and International Residential codes, our website is currently being updated. The commercial and residential permit instructions and guidelines are being changed to address updates and requirements of current best practices for building regulations. The new Code and Design Criteria went into effect on April 1, 2022.
