As per EMMC 17.25.050A, new homes must have front and side yards improved prior to occupancy in accordance with an approved yard landscaping plan approved in conjunction with the final plat for development. In cases of inclement weather, the builder or property owner may pay a $2,000 cash escrow per lot to the city and complete the landscaping no later than six months after the issuance of the certificate of occupancy.
To submit your landscape escrow deposit, use the link below. To receive a refund, you will use the link provided to you in the deposit confirmation email.
The Building division reviews plans, issues building permits and performs field inspections of permitted buildings to ensure compliance with local and state mandated regulations related to building construction, maintenance and rehabilitation.
Notes about Inspections:
To apply for a permit, you will submit all the items required on the submittal checklist to the building department located in the Community Development Building at 2565 N Pony Express Pkwy. You may be required to pay a plan review fee and other relevant fees to start the building permit process.
There are required items that must be included with your application along with your building plans. Using a permit submittal checklist helps you make sure you have all of the items needed for your application. Incomplete applications cannot be accepted.
You can begin construction after you have picked up your approved permit.
Yes. Your application will expire if you do not pick up your permit within 180 days of the application date. Once it is active, you must have an inspection within 180 days and must show progress.
Once the permit has been reviewed, the fees are calculated automatically by valuation. We will not have the total until the review has been completed.

Additional impact fees from UFA are also required.
