Residential Building Permits

The following permits require review from the Planning Division.  A plat of survey is required for all permits for installation of, replacement of, and additions to fences, decks, pools, patios (with or without a roof), driveways, driveway aprons, sidewalks, garages, pergolas and similar structures, and additions.  This includes the replacement of flatwork (driveways, aprons, sidewalks) with the same dimensions and location.

If your property is part of a Homeowners Association on this list, you will need to bring in a copy of the HOA approval as part of the permit.

If a contractor is performing the work, then the contractor must be the one to pull the permit (per Sec. 8-36 of the City of Joliet Code of Ordinances).
