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.
