Residential Permit Applications
To determine if a permit is required and the exact permit fee, contact the Inspections Department at (952) 953-2588. Separate permits are required for plumbing, mechanical, and electrical work. As of January 17, 2011, the Inspections Department processes electrical permit applications. Electrical inspections are scheduled through the electrical inspector directly between the hours of 7:00 am and 8:30 am, Monday through Friday, at (952) 997-6822.
Fixed fee permit applications can be mailed with a check, or permits may be applied for in person at the Inspections Department located on the first floor of the Municipal Center. Projects that require a value-based permit include new homes, home additions, porches, garages, and basement finishes. Do not send payment with these applications. Applications require two sets of building plans and are reviewed in the order received.
Please Note: Due to the adoption of the 2015 State Building Code, some information in the permit handouts may not be updated in accordance with the new code. These code changes will be addressed during the plan review process as we transition to the new codes. Please contact the Building Inspections Division at (952) 953-2588 with any questions.
