How long is my permit good for?

Issued permits are good for 180 days from the last approved inspection performed, on the project. Permits can be extended, upon request, by emailing the Building Division. Applications, that have not been submitted, will expire after 90 days.  

Issued permits that go beyond 180 days may be able to be extended. The reasoning will need to be due to a hardship and will be determined to be valid on a case-by-case basis. Any issued permit applications, that are more than a year old, will need to be resubmitted with a permit fee for the remaining work.

Any issued permit, that required a full plan review, that has been expired for more than a year, will need to go through another full plan review if a new code year has been adopted since the last review. In this case, the full fee for the plan review and permit will be assessed.
