PERMITTING SERVICES

Getting started on a big project is exciting. The permitting process allows you to build in a way that protects your investment, is respectful of the surrounding community, and complies with Arizona law. 

If you are getting a permit for the first time and have any questions, you are encouraged to call 602-506-3301.
Or you may fill out this short form with a brief description of your project goals and we'll get right back to you!

In some cases you may require a permit from multiple departments. Our five permitting departments include:
Air Quality (AQ)Environmental Services (ESD)Flood Control (FCD), Planning & Development (P&D), and Transportation (MCDOT).
