Lewisville residents looking to make additions to their house or property now have an interactive website to inform them of all required steps and permits.

The Building Inspection Division launched the Building Permits kiosk site earlier this week. It features a numbered diagram for many popular home construction upgrades. Users simply click on the numbered location of their desired project, and they will be taken directly to a site specifically for that project. That site includes all general information requirements for the project, directions on applying for a plan review, notices about inspections, and an application for any fees. In some cases, the site also includes a waiver request.

A building permit is required for all new construction, remodeling, changes, or additions to structures including include signs, fences, retaining walls, swimming pools, patio covers, home rewiring, electrical or mechanical work, and plumbing.

A recently passed ordinance now requires all contractors to register with the City of Lewisville before beginning any work. The City previously had a similar ordinance on the books, but over the years with various amendments to building codes, those registration requirements were eliminated.

Having contractors register with the City allows for the tracking of basic contractor information and enables the City to hold contractors responsible in the performance of their work. This includes obtaining required permits and inspections, and following all requirements of an issued permit.
