When is a Building Permit needed for a Remodel/Renovation?

When it comes to knowing when you should contact the City to obtain a permit, the basic rules are that if your project will add, alter, repair, remove, enlarge, modify, or replace electrical, HVAC, plumbing, structural elements, weather barriers (roof, siding, windows), or accessory structures (pool, fence, boat house, etc.) then you must obtain a permit from the Development Services Department.
