Mr. Rusk,

A Residential Building Permit is required to construct this improvement of your property. An important factor of construction is that the drainage of adjacent properties is not obstructed by the improvements. To ensure this does not happen, we ask that you stop the alterations short of any common property lines with your neighbors. This property line often is a drainage swale that needs to remain free of any improvements.

To obtain a permit you need to provided the following application and information to 6101 Frisco Square Blvd 3rd floor customer service desk. You will be contacted after the review and acceptance of permit is complete.

- Residential Building Permit Application. ocuments/Building%20Inspections/Plan%20Review/Applications/ResidentialPermitAppJ an2010.pdf
- Two copies of survey plot with proposed dimension of all improvements indicated.
- list of materials / reinforcement used.

Improvements may not be located in any dedicated easements. HOA approval may also be required in addition to building permit. If you are using the services of a general contractor, they must be registered with the City.

Thank you,

Phillip Climer
Asst. Building Official
