What is Permitting?

A permit is a formal document issued by the city or county and is required for most construction or remodeling projects. Therefore, it is important to obtain the proper permit before starting your next building project. For instance, securing land use permits ensures that current or proposed land uses consider all viable factors. These factors include the environmental constraints, population density, commerce, traffic and roadway capacities, storm water management, utility availability and general benefit of the land’s (potential) use.
