Contact your city for zoning information. For land in unincorporated county areas, the zoning department can help you determine parcel legality and any zoning restrictions that may apply to your property. Most projects will need a zoning clearance as part of the building application process.
A permit is required for all new homes, additions to existing homes, sheds exceeding 200 square feet, shops, garages, and all commercial construction. A permit may be required for remodel work (check with our office). If you're just replacing a furnace or an electrical panel, contact our office for a "50.50" permit. Structures that may not require a building permit include:
Go to the Building Permit Applications page.
Fill out a Contractor Change Form and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Call 435-755-1650 press 1 during business hours. See the Building Inspections page for details.
Always check with your city for any zoning or paperwork requirements they may have. In unincorporated county areas, rooftop solar panels do not need a zoning clearance, but ground pedestal solar panels do need a zoning clearance. Follow the instructions on the Building Permit Applications page, but you do not need a Manual J&D form. You will need to provide diagrams/plans showing where the panels will go on the roof, dimensions, etc. Also include any specifications packet by the manufacturer showing materials, weight, etc. in your application packet.
Applications for residential projects can be submitted online. However, be sure that you send all application materials at the same time. Check our Electronic Plan Submission page to view all the requirements for online applications.
Permit cost is dependent on several factors, including the square footage and value of the project. Cost is determined after plans are reviewed. Electrical panel and furnace replacements are the only permits with a set cost, which is $50.50. For Zoning fees, see the Development Services Fee Schedule or contact your city to discuss any zoning and impact fees that may apply.
