In order to encourage safety during the holiday season, the following special construction safety measures will be initiated by the City during the above specified period for the areas denoted on the attached map. Any exception to the holiday safety measures will be considered on a case-by-case basis, including adherence to special permit conditions as imposed to mitigate interference with holiday activities.

Permit Prerequisites:

A licensed-contractor is required for all projects with a valuation of $500 or more.

Owner-builder projects are only applicable for owner-occupied single-family residences and owner-occupied condos (interior work only).  In other words, if the work takes place in a residential property, and the owner occupies that residence, the owner can act as their own general contractor on the job, and either does the work themselves or has employees (or subcontractors) working on the project. The homeowner cannot construct and then sell more than two structures during any three-year period. Commercial and multi-family properties do not qualify for "owner-builder". When you sign a permit application as an owner-builder, you assume full responsibility for all phases of your project and its integrity.
