Building Something?

Avoid costly problems later by finding out what regulations and permits apply to your project. Here's what you need to know:

Can I build it on my property?

Review the GIS Website Map to determine your property's Zoning District. To find out what can be built and where it may be located, review the Zoning Code for your property's Zoning District.

Do I need a Zoning Compliance Permit?

Review the Zoning Compliance section of the General Provisions and Use Regulations chapter of the Zoning Code. Also review any other sections that may apply to your specific project (such as accessory buildings, fences, and projections into required yards). If a permit is required, you will need to submit a Zoning Compliance Permit Application.

Do I need a building permit?

If a Zoning Compliance Permit is required you will most likely need a building permit. For more information on building permits and related inspections, please contact the Building Department at (907) 486-8070.

How much do permits cost?

The cost of permits can be found in the Fee Schedule.

What can happen if I don't obtain the required permits?

Unpermitted construction can be subject to the penalties prescribed in the Enforcement, Penalties, and Remedies chapter of the Zoning Code.
