Temporary Structure

A temporary structure permit is needed for any temporary construction-related structures including temporary tents, trailers and offices.

  • Don’t start work without an approved permit. A violation could result in a code enforcement violation with a penalty fee.
  • If the structure needs electricity including use of a generator, an additional electrical permit must be submitted.
