Certificate of Occupancy

About Certificates of Occupancy

Every new business, tenant, or building is required to have a Certificate of Occupancy. This certificate indicates that the building or tenant meets the minimum adopted building and fire codes.

Plan review is a step in the permitting process which usually leads to a Certificate of Occupancy. See checklists and other information related to plan review and permits for repair of fire protection systems.

All plan reviews are performed by appointment only. Schedule an appointment for plan review by using the online Plan Review Appointment Request button below. We strive to maintain a window of 10-14 business days for all plan reviews. This is subject to staffing levels and work load.

Effective March 1, 2019 all Plan Review Application fees must be paid at time of the first appointment or review.

Accepted forms of payment:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Diners Club
  • Discover
  • Apple Pay
  • Cash
  • Check
  • American Express

Effective Monday, November 4, 2019, all requests for Plan Review appointments must be scheduled through the Contractor Permit Portal.

You can also request to have a virtual meeting via zoom or teams or a phone call while your plans are reviewed.
