You have determined that the City of Montgomery requires a building, electrical, or zoning permit for the project you will be doing on your property. The following is meant to assist and guide you with the process.
Complete the appropriate building permit application BEFORE you beginning working on the proposed project. Homeowners are typically allowed to perform the work on the building they occupy after the building permit is issued. A certified contractor can also submit the building permit for you. By state law commercial projects are required to have a design professional prepare the project documents.
Submit to City Hall
Most projects require a plan review, which require staff to verify the plans comply with specific code requirements. This review minimizes misunderstanding and construction delays for the projects. These reviews may take up to few days to a couple of weeks depending on the scale of the proposed project. These time frames are based on the project submittal being complete and submitted with no major code violations. For very large commercial projects it may take longer than the typical time frame.
