Notice of Updates to Building Permitting Fee Schedule
The Board of County Commissioners recently approved an update to the structure and fees charged for Building Permits. These updates are the result of an extensive study conducted by an independent consultant. The recommendations of the study will allow the County to maintain the level of service delivery that our clients have come to expected for years to come while also allowing for the implementation of additional innovations and enhanced services in the future. The first phase of the new fee structure are effective as of September 9, 2023. The both phases fees and structure are currently available for review. A recorded webinar discussing some of the changes is also available.
