What is the cost of a building permit?
Since every project is unique, the best way to find out how much a permit costs would be to review the applicable fees and deposits information for each project type.

Projects requiring a plan review typically require the payment of an application fee deposit at the time the application is made. The remaining cost is not paid until after the permit is approved and the applicant is notified of the final amount. Permit fees for large scale projects are typically calculated based on information such as square footage, number of fixtures, estimated cost of construction, etc. The final permit fee is paid to the Development and Planning Services Department at the time the permit is issued. For more information, contact the Development and Planning Services Department at 847-664-4050.
