If the project’s construction causes alterations to the exterior of the building, the City’s “Design Review Board” (DRB) must review and approve these alterations before a building permit application can be made. See “Design Review Board Application” form. Building Permit Application
***PLEASE NOTE: Substantive reviews such as required second and third reviews for both commercial and residential projects may require additional processing time. On average, two (2) to three (3) added business days are normally required for each substantive review.
***PLEASE NOTE: The timelines may vary due to volume and suspensions for delays caused by the need for public hearings, state or federal licenses or approvals from public utilities. Also note that this timeline processing is within the department only (does not include time waiting for client response).
This is a guide of project types which require building plan review. Please contact the Building Safety Department at (623)935-1066, regarding whether construction drawings and building plan review will be required for your specific project.
After the second re-inspection, and building corrections are still not properly addressed, a “re-inspection fee” will be accessed and paid by the contractor before any further inspections are made. Residential Inspection Checklist
For a city or town that holds a primary election for city or town council, the majority of votes cast is determined by the following:
• Calculate the total number of actual votes cast for all candidates for that office, whose names were lawfully on the ballot.
• Divide that sum by the number of seats to be filled for the office.
• Divide that result by two and round it to the highest whole number.
A proposition must receive more "yes" votes than "no" votes in order to pass. For example: if 1,000 ballots are cast, with 490 "yes" and 489 "no" votes, the proposition passes. (sometimes not everyone chooses to vote on propositions)
*** Please note: If the existing window glazing was not originally safety glazing and the existing window is located in a “hazardous location”, the new replacement window (glazing) must comply.
o Ensure that the replacement windows in the bedrooms are of the operable type, with clear openings to meet or exceed the minimum required “emergency escape and rescue opening” size, reference section R310, I.R.C. o To meet the minimum natural ventilation requirements of section R303, I.R.C., ensure that the replaced operable windows remain operable.o The replacement windows must have a “U-factor” of 0.75 or better, and a maximum “SHGC” of 0.40, reference Table N1102.1, I.R.C.
***Please note: Added automatic garage door openers shall be listed and installed in accordance with UL325.
*** Please note: If the existing window glazing was not originally safety ("tempered") glazing and the existing window was located in a “hazardous location”, the new replacement window (glazing) must be.

In addition, always provide a minimum 4 inch clearance between the finish grade and the “weep screed” used in conjunction with (and located at the bottom of) the exterior stucco wall finish, reference Section R703.6.2.1, I.R.C.
*** Please note: For additions and remodels street address numbering must be clearly visible from the street.
Yes. Since roof tiles normally weigh more than asphalt shingles, the roof framing members (roof rafters or roof trusses) may not have been originally designed for this added roof (dead) load. Therefore, as part of the permitting process, a professional engineer or architect must analyze and redesign the roof framing as necessary to accommodate this added roofing material (dead) load.
*** Please note: A minimum 36 inch unobstructed width is required for access to and egress from any required "emergency escape and rescue opening."
***Please note: Site plans must be drawn to scale with appropriate dimensioned property lines and "buildilng setbacks." Pencil markings are not allowed on the site plan.
***Please note: Missing or damaged suction outlet covers/grates must be replaced immediately. Pools/spas should not be used until this is done, therefore it is extremely important to include a visual inspection of these components as part of the pool/spa routine maintenance.
