1 - Q. How much does a permit cost?
A. Fees are based on a number of components that depend on the nature and scope of any given project or situation. To determine permit fees, take a look at the Fee Subtitle. Permit fees are based on the construction value of the work that is being done. See page 22 of the Fee Subtitle to determine the corresponding Development Fee Index for your project. See page 23 to determine the development fees for your project. If you’re not sure what your construction value is, see pages 92-93 for new construction values. See Page 78 for alteration values. PLEASE NOTE: Final fees are not determined until a permit is issued.
Building Permits - If you are applying for a building permit and know the square footage, type of construction, and occupancy of what you plan to build, you can get an estimate from a permit specialist--available in person (or over the phone) during normal operating hours in our Applicant Services Center.
Over-the-Counter (OTC) Permits - See CAM 104, Getting an Over-the-Counter Permit, for more information, including contact information for our OTC staff.
2 - Q. How much does a Critical Area Exemption cost?
A. A minimum of 1/2 hour at the DPD hourly rate is charged for a Critical Area Exemption. The DPD hourly rate is based on the Fee Subtitle. The minimum fee is due at application intake. Time beyond the 1/2 hour is charged additionally, if extra time is needed to review the application. That fee is due at issuance of the exemption.
3 - Q. How much will my Master Use Permit (MUP) cost?
