As of June 2021, the total number of building permits issued so far for this fiscal year was 19,910. The total building permits issued for FY2020 was $24,160.


The total building permit value as of June 2021 was $2,050,534,552. When considered with other factors (e.g., total number of building permits issued), the total building permit value is a good barometer for how the local economy is doing at any point in time and what can be reasonably be expected in property values/taxes in the near future. Whereas there are no targets for this metric, a higher total building permit value will represent a stronger construction market and local economy.

Operating Budget Analysis

Revenues for this department are generated by services billed. FY2022 Construction Permit revenues are expected to increase 20.6% from Projections FY2021 due to new construction activity, home renovations, and large construction building projects remaining as scheduled.


Personnel Expenses increase from Revised FY2021 is due to increases in salaries, pension contributions, and healthcare costs, and the addition of nine FTEs. Other expenses includes upgrades to the Accela system used for permitting mostly funded by Construction Services Division. The upgrade will address a number of software issues, enable new features and functions for future City use, improve performance and reliability for customers and employees using the system and give scalability and security needed to address increasing growth.
