Building Permits

Building Permits are issued for unincorporated areas of Douglas County.  Building permits authorize the performance of a specified activity and allow the Building Official to protect the occupants of buildings by reducing the potential hazards of unsafe construction and ensuring public health, safety, and welfare. The Building Division also reviews construction documents and issue permits for the installation and alteration of buildings and structures, inspect the premises for permits that have been issued and enforce compliance with the provisions of the adopted Code.  The County’s Contractor Registration Program requires contractors applying for permits to be registered. 


  • It shall be the sole responsibility of the property owner and/or permit holder to verify the location of all utilities and easements including water, sewer, well, septic, electric, phone, cable, fiber optic, and gas prior to excavation or construction of any structure.
  • If your project requires a trash dumpster or roll-off trash container, it must be placed on your property or in the driveway. Trash dumpsters and roll-off trash containers are not permitted to be placed on any public road.
