Your application packet must include all of the following materials, as similarly listed on the Building Permit Applications page:
After the plan review is complete, staff will e-mail back the approved/stamped plan set. A digital or paper copy of your plans must be on-site for inspections. Print the plans large enough to match 1/4" scale and keep them on-site for construction and inspections. Approval normally requires 3-10 working days for average structures. Larger commercial projects may require 30-45 working days for approval. You may pay for your permit over the phone or at the office. Make checks payable to Cache County Corporation. Call 435-755-1650 press 1 to pay for your permit by phone. There is a 2.5% service fee to process credit/debit card transactions. E-checks may be processed for a flat $0.49 fee.
