How long does it take to get a building permit?
Getting a building permit helps you to ensure that your project meets safety and building code standards. The city has checklists to let you know exactly what to supply with each application. For building permit information, call 952-442-2184. For building code information and inspections, call 763-479-1720.

New and Minor Construction permits may take up to 15 business days to process once all necessary documentation has been submitted to the city.

You will be contacted by phone when your permit is ready to be picked up.
