Building Permits

Tenant Occupancy Permits


The Tenant Occupancy Permit Application is an application for all tenants that are occupying a commercial business. This applies to any business moving to a commercial location.
 
Any time there is a tenant change in an existing building, the Fire Marshal requires a routine life and safety inspection and/or a compliance inspection for a change of use of the suite or building site you will be occupying. There will be a $25 permit fee for this application. A BSD Fire/Building Inspector will conduct all tenant occupancy inspections.
