New Residential or Commercial Building Permit Fee

Per City ordinance, Section 500.350, of the Municipal Code, the Residential and Commercial building permit fees shall be calculated using the most current estimated square footage construction costs listed in the Building Valuation Data, as published by the International Code Council. However, if the known estimated construction cost, as listed on the permit application, exceeds the Building Valuation Data calculated amount, the known estimated construction cost will be used to determine the permit fee. The building permit fee multiplier shall be applied at a rate of 0.0050.

Notice: The connection and supply fees for new utilities are added to the building permit fee in addition to water and sewer line fees and applicable water deposit and backflow fees. Please contact the Engineering Division for current fees and required supplies for a cost estimate.

Example: $100,000 (Application provided ECC), Calculated $124,359 (based on square footage and ICC BVD)

$124,359 x 0.0050 = $621.79 permit fee
