    1.      Building Permit Fee (Municipal Code § 6-13-3).  The Building Permit Fee for 1&2-Family Residential Additions, Alterations And Accessory Structures consists of a Clerical Fee, a Plan Review Fee, a Development Services Fee and Inspection Fees.  In addition to the Building Permit Fee, other fees may be required depending on the nature of the project, such as consultant and agency fees, or water and sewer fees.

    The Plan Review and Clerical Fees must be paid at the time an application for permit is submitted.  The Development Services Fee and Inspection Fees must be paid at the time of issuance of a permit.

    (a)        Clerical Fee. $80.00

    (b)        Plan Review Fees.  Plan review fees for 1&2-Family Residential Additions, Alterations And Accessory Structures are given in Table 1, and are based on the size of the structure or work area and the disciplines involved in the review.  Review fees are based on up to two review cycles.  If additional review is required as a result of nonresponsiveness to review comments on the part of the permit applicant, then an additional plan review fee in the amount of 25% of the total initial plan review fees will be charged for each additional review cycle, and payment will be required at time of resubmittal for review.

    (c)        Development Services Fee.  The development services fee for 1&2-Family Residential Additions, Alterations And Accessory Structures is based on the estimated cost of construction (“building valuation”), as approved by the building official.

    (1)        The fee is calculated as $5.60 per $1,000 of building valuation, with a minimum fee of $50.

    (2)        The applicant must provide an estimated building valuation at the time of application for permit.  The building valuation must include the total cost of construction materials and labor for the types of work associated with the permit, such as foundation work; structural and nonstructural building components; permanent systems such as electrical, gas, mechanical and plumbing; and interior finish material.   The building valuation does not include such items as appliances, decorations, furnishings or non-building-related items.

    (3)        If, in the opinion of the building official, the building valuation is underestimated on the permit application, the application will not be approved unless the applicant is able to provide detailed information in support of the estimate to meet the approval of the building official.  In the event of a dispute, the building official will use the latest version of the Building Valuation Data published in the International Code Council’s Building Safety Journal or other similar cost-per-square-foot resource to determine the minimum acceptable building valuation.  The final building valuation will be set by the building official.

    (d)       Inspection Fees.  Inspection fees for 1&2-Family Residential Additions, Alterations and Accessory Structures are given in Table 2, based on the size of the structure or work area and the types of inspections required.  Inspection fees are based on a specified number of inspections within each applicable inspection discipline.  The fee for additional inspections is $80 each, and such payment is required at time of scheduling the inspection.
