All new residential construction requires complete plans review and permit acquisition prior to construction. Information on plan reviews and permits are listed below.
On-site inspections are required to be scheduled and will be provided by a new construction staff inspector free of charge. A final inspection, approval and "Certificate of Occupancy" are required by state law, prior to occupancy of any residential structure.
The following are required for plan review:
- A dimensioned site plan which locates the structure on the lot.
- A foundation plan showing poured wall or crawl space details, if applicable.
- A floor plan with all rooms identified and dimensioned.
- A proper wall section
- Front, side and rear elevations of the proposed structure.
- Framing details including joist and rafter layouts, truss layout, and knee walls, if applicable.
- Floor elevation callout on site plan, relative to closest downstream manhole.
- LFUCG Division of Engineering approval of site drainage and erosion control measures.
All plans must be on paper no smaller than 8 1/2" X 11" and must be drawn to scale or properly dimensioned.
Plans may be submitted for review or can be reviewed upon request at the Building Inspection office on a first-come, first served basis during regular working hours.
