Building/zoning permit process

We love to see so many summer remodeling projects & various home improvements underway on properties around town. And it’s very exciting to see new construction taking shape too! Fresh paint or siding, energy-efficient windows & doors, safer sidewalks & nuisance-free properties make Paullina better for us all. Just remember that most work requires a permit to be filed for approval in advance with the City to ensure all ordinances & zoning regulations are followed. Please know the location of your lot lines before filling out the form as your measurements & drawings of setbacks are necessary for proper review. A scaled filing fee applies & your permit must be approved BEFORE you begin work. Usually permits can be handled within a week, depending on complexity.
The City code applies whether you hire a contractor or do it yourself.
