If I plan to do interior or exterior demolition, is a permit required and if so, what plans do I need to submit?
A person must have a demolition permit for either interior or exterior demolition. For interior demolitions (especially if the structure will be changed), a floor plan is required with the application showing where everything is located. For exterior or entire structure demolitions, a site plan is required showing what is to be demolished and where it is located. Five copies of plans are required with residential demolition applications and 6 copies are required with commercial demolition applications. In the Historic District, all Demolition Permits are reviewed and must be approved by the Historic District Commission. Exterior demolition may require approval from the Planning and Zoning Department if it is located in any of the City’s Conservation or Revitalization Districts.
