Building Permit Application Instructions and General Information
Please read the application instructions carefully. An incomplete application may delay your requested permit or cause additional fees for reviews or inspections.
Please contact the City Office for the building permit application form. Return the completed form and site plan to the City office along with a digital copy of the construction plans and the $45.00 Plan Review fee.
The City Office will notify you of plan approval. At this time, applicable fees will be assessed and you will be issued a permit to build and an inspection signature card. The building permit and inspection card are to be posted at the building site. For new homes, it is suggested the cards be hung by the furnace.
Initial zoning inspection: Survey marks (Lot lines) need to be clearly and properly identified or a survey will be required. Stake or flag the new construction area (foot print). Provide accurate measurements from designated survey marks.
It is the responsibility of the builder to contact inspectors for the designated inspections. Please allow for Three (3) to Five (5) days notice for an inspection to be completed. When each inspection each is completed, the inspector MUST sign the inspection card.
Completion: When the building project is completed and all inspections have been completed and signed for, the inspection card must be returned to the Bennet City Office.
The final Certificate of Occupancy will be issued upon receipt of proof of final building inspection and full payment of any additional fees.
