Building Valuation & Fees

Plan Review Fees
Plan review fees are required at the time of application for a building permit. Building permit and other applicable fees are payable at the time of permit issuance. Work should not commence prior to the issuance of the Building Permit.

Construction value will be calculated using Building Valuation Data. The permit fee will be based on this valuation data. Plan Review fees are based on 65% of the permit fee. Applications will not be accepted without the review fee.

Total Permit Cost
You can estimate your total permit cost by using the following steps:
  1. Determine construction cost value by using Building Valuation Data
  2. Determine permit fee using Building Permit Fee Schedule
  3. Figure plan review fee - 65% of permit fee (if applicable)
  4. Figure use tax based on 3% of 60% of valuation
  5. Fees for some residential projects are pre-determined. See Building Permit Fee Schedule for a list of qualifying projects.
