Starting a project
When considering a home improvement project, your planning process should include calling City Hall. That way you have complete information about how long it takes to obtain required permits, inspections, or variances before you hire and schedule contractors. Also, visit the Inspection Department to review your street file for helpful information.
Why are permits required?
Permits ensure that construction in Golden Valley meets local, state, and federal building standards and codes. The permit process provides a way for City building officials and inspectors to review the design and inspect construction to ensure that minimum standards are met and appropriate materials are used. When a property does not comply with the codes, its value decreases. Building permits provide a way for cities to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the community and property occupants and for property owners to ensure that their investment is protected.
