​important notice 

The City's Code Administration Division is currently experiencing a high volume of building permit activity. Due to recent staff shortages and operational changes related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the standard processing and review time for building permits has been delayed. Staff is continuing to process and review permits as quickly and as efficiently as possible. If you have any questions, please call 816-228-0117 or 816-228-0118 or Email. We appreciate your patience as we work towards reducing the delay and returning to standard processing and review times.
