Building or Remodeling?

Providence City contracts with outside agencies for plan review and inspections.
Prior to building or remodeling any structure in Providence City, please submit the appropriate zoning permit application from our Maps and Forms page to the Providence City Office Specialist for Zoning Compliance. If your structure involves connecting to the City’s culinary water system please complete the water system connection form in your application packet. If your structure involves connecting to the City’s sanitary sewer system, please complete the sewer system connection form in your application.

For questions about permits, please call our office and ask for:

  • Diane Campbell – subdivisions, commercial development, conditional uses, multi-family development
  • April Fredrickson – remodels, new homes, accessory buildings, storm water

Building a fence? Please review our City Code – Fence Regulations and Fences in Commercial ZonesFence Questions and Answers, and our Clear View Detail.

(Planning Commission Information)

Before applications are sent to the Planning Commission, they are reviewed by City executive staff. Executive Staff meets each Wednesday (as needed). New applications must be received at least seven days before the meeting when they will be distributed. They will be reviewed one week after they are distributed (at least two weeks from the date received).  Answers to review comments must be received, at the City Office, seven days prior to the meeting when they will be reconsidered.
