What should I do if my permit has expired?

Don't let your permit expire. We have a simplistic approach to extend permits; submit a Permit-Plan Check Extension Application Form (PDF).

Once a permit has expired, a new permit will be required to be issued to resolve the expired permit. The following will be required:

  • The owner completes and submits a new Building Permit Application Form (PDF) (must be printed on letter size paper, 8.5 inches by 11 inches)
  • Obtain all department/division re-approval; there may be additional fees from other departments/divisions:
    • Air Pollution
    • Environmental Health
    • Planning
    • Public Works
    • Etc.
  • New plans and related documents may be required (this will be reviewed at the time of submitting the new permit application)
  • Fees (view current Fee Schedule):
    • 1-hour minimum fee for any applicable Plan Check. New codes will apply to unfinished work, if applicable
    • Administrative fee
    • Inspection fee multiplied by the number of inspections to complete the project
    • Records fee
