Development Checklists

This page holds all the checklists detailing the requirements of each application in MyGov, to include building, site plan, certificates of appropriateness, and platting. Checklists are a tool to assist in listing required documents and general requirements for each permit. They do not list all code requirements that may apply to any given project or property, as each is unique, and they do not replace the need to read the adopted codes.

General Information
  • Mail payment ahead of submitting the application for a complete submittal. Use the MyGov fee estimator tool or call the Planning Dept. for a quote if needed.
