How to apply?

Submit an application to Building that identifies the property, lists the name of any architect or engineer who will work on the project, and describes the proposed work in detail. Along with that application, submit the following:

  • A plot plan showing any driveway, walkway, parking area, wells, retaining walls, utilities, easements, trees, and other structures (both existing and proposed)
  • A floor plan, showing the existing layout of each room and the entry to the deck
  • Exterior elevations showing how the deck looks in relation to the house
  • Foundation details
  • Framing details for the deck.

A separate handout entitled Plan Requirements describes requirements in greater detail and gives you examples of how the various plans should be drawn.
