Building permits: Online applications for building permits are preferred. Before visiting the Permit Center, please register for your online account and fill in as much information about your permit as possible. Check out our CC LMS page for Login, Training, and FAQs.
Only one application may be submitted at a time.
Customers are encouraged to make appointments with staff to ensure faster service. Make an appointment by phone (360) 397-2375 ext. 4807 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check current wait times prior to your visit.
Beginning January 1, 2018, the Permit Center will no longer accept checks in excess of the amount due at submittal. Additionally, the Permit Center has a no-refund policy for amounts less than $200 that will be followed more rigorously.
With the recent release of all building and fire permits online, Clark County has noticed an uptick in customers coming to the Permit Center with checks written for the wrong amounts. There are three reasons for errors:
- Using the Fee Estimate report as the basis for determining fees
- Entering incorrect information during the application process
- Writing checks for the entire fees due when only application fees are due at submittal
This presents significant challenges for staff, presents customers with an extended refund wait time (six weeks minimum), and is very expensive for the county to process.
We encourage customers to pay online at time of submittal or complete their check once the application has been processed.
