How to Submit Permits
All public buildings will be closed from Monday March 23, 2020 through Monday, May 4, 2020. However, we will still be processing permits electronically. All permit applications and supplemental information (e.g. Surveys, site plans, building plans) must be emailed to email@example.com. We are extending permit expirations to one year. Please stay tuned to our announcements on the home page for the most up to date information regarding Dayton’s response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Please attach the signed and filled out permit application form and materials to the email (or send a link to a cloud sharing platform where the documents can be downloaded). In the subject line of the email please indicate the address for the property and the permit type (e.g. 1234 Main st. – New Construction; or 1234 Main st. – Deck Permit).
We will notify you by email or phone when permits are ready for payment and will be issued upon receipt of payment. We will still be accepting checks for permits via mail, or by the City’s drop box in front of City Hall. Please indicate the address or permit number either in a cover letter with the check, or the check memo. Most permits can also be paid for via credit card, however, a 3% processing fee will be applied for permits over $500. New Construction permits will be required to submit payment by check due to the site escrow requirements. We cannot process bank wires, or e-checks.
Metro West will still be operating and any scheduling and inspections will still be coordinated by calling Metro West Inspection Services at 763-479-1720.
Building permit applications are to be submitted at City Hall. Applications must be accompanied by two sets of plans and two surveys (surveys are needed if permit is for exterior work). Metro West Inspection Services is contracted by Dayton to complete building inspections. Please direct building code questions and inspection requests to Metro West Inspection Services at 763-479-1720.
**Homes over 20 years old may qualify for permit discounts for remodeling, basement finishes, or additions. Please contact City Hall for more information**
