For some people in Clark County, the most exciting thing that occurs is building something, but often you need a building permit. This can be a complicated process. There are often many different forms and much data you must have for getting a building permit.

Why and When Do I Have to Apply for a Building Permit in Clark County?

While not all situations require a building permit, most do. These are important because they help ensure the safety of the structure. Here are some examples of when you must have one.

  • Housing, including prefabricated and modular homes
  • Garages and additions
  • Pole barns and additions
  • Carports
  • Single story structures over 200 square feet
  • Patio covers and enclosures
  • Roof replacement/repair over 25% of the surface area
  • Building replacement/repair involving structural elements
  • Foundation replacement/repair
  • Stairs (interior or exterior)
  • Ramps
  • Demolition

There are other situations, but these are the major ones. There is an exception for a single-story structure zoned as being a storage or tool shed if it does not exceed 200 square feet. The only other exception is for building zoned only for agriculture. In all of the cases where you have to have a building permit, you have to have it prior to starting the job. It's important to know that you might need other permits, like if you're running electricity.

How Can I Get a Building Permit in Clark County?

Here's how you can go about getting a building permit in Clark County:

  1. Get your zoning permit from the zoning department.
  2. Get Health Department approval, if required.
  3. Get your building permit, after you submit a full set of construction plans, the auditor's parcel number for the property, and the 2013 energy code requirement form.

So, you'll start by planning your structure, including developing a full set of construction plans, then get a zoning permit, Health Department approval, then complete the work to get the building permit. In short, it's a complex process. It's important that you've got all the right data and forms.

What Fees Do I Have to Pay to Get a Building Permit in Clark County?

There are multiple fees to pay for a building permit. The zoning fee varies by city. If you need inspections, there may be fees for that. Then you have to pay for the building permit itself. Fees and inspections (if required) are estimated to be a minimum of $450.
