How long is a permit good for?

Permits must be obtained within six months of approval of the plans and building permits are valid only for six months from the date of issuance unless construction has begun. If construction is not begun within six months or, once started, is suspended for a period of more than 90 days, the permit will expire, and the complete permit process, including the payment of fees, will begin again.

Please remember that city approval of plans and specifications does not remove you from the responsibility of meeting all of the applicable standards in the building codes, other city ordinances, and state and federal laws.
