This document explains the procedure for obtaining a Site Permit and scheduling of the mandatory pre-construction meeting with the Engineering Department Field Operations Group. It also provides a brief overview of other City and non-City permits that may be required for your project.

Important Aspects of the Process

  • Once Plan Commission approves a plat, a Site Permit may be issued.
  • At the conclusion of the pre-construction meeting, an applicant may obtain a site permit.
  • While the Building Permit and Site Permit processes can run concurrently, a Site Permit must be obtained prior to issuance of a Building Permit.
  • Plats must be filed with the County Clerk prior to issuance of a Building Permit.
  • Public infrastructure improvements are inspected by the City. Refer to the Site Permit Construction Inspection document (PDF) for record drawing (as-built) requirements in the final inspections checklist.
