Alternate Formula For Fee’s

When application for building permit is made, and the “value of construction” does not accurately reflect the cost of construction within the industry, the following formula will be the basis for determining true construction values of residential buildings.

New Residential

  • $120.00/ sq. ft. (main floor including basement)
  • $80.00 / sq. ft. (additional floors)

Residential Additions

  • $54.00 / sq. ft.

Residential Accessory Buildings

  • $24.00 / sq. ft.

NOTE: This is NOT an increase in permit fees. The criteria for establishing the formula to determine construction value of a project is based on information received from other municipalities and the building industry. This formula is to provide equity in the calculation of permit fees.
