Permit Applications & Fees

Building Permit Fees

Most building permit fees are based on the square footage of the structure being built, but a few permits are flat-fee permits. For the square footage types of permits we can only provide estimates and not exact costs until the building plans are actually turned in. View the new fee schedule for flat-fee and Square Footage permits (PDF). For more information, contact the Building Department at 719-836-4255.
