When are they required?
Generally, you need to obtain a building permit from the City whenever you construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, remove, improve, convert, or demolish a building or other structure. A building could be anything from a house to a tool shed. Generally, permits are required for all building (structural - interior or exterior) and land disturbance activities - residential and commercial, as well as for towers, demolition, electrical work, low voltage wiring, plumbing, and, heating and air conditioning.

Note: All new construction, major redevelopment/renovation and expansion of existing structures must be approved for zoning and site development prior to permitting. Contact Community Development at (770) 943-1666, if you have zoning or permitting related questions. Permitting and Inspections
