A building permit is required if you intend to erect, alter, demolish or move any building.  Projects requiring permits include the following: porches, garages, decks, finishing basements, sheds (if larger than 200 square feet), room additions, remodeling, fences, fireplaces, retaining walls over 4 feet, re-roofs, residing, pools over 24 inches deep or 5,000 gallons, water heaters, furnaces, air conditioners, sprinkler systems, and windows.

Permit applications and written instruction are available at City Hall and online.  The City does not issue permits for electrical work.  Electrical permits must be obtained from the Minnesota Electrical Board (651) 284-5064.

The application review process takes approximately 5-7 days.  If you have any questions on the permit process, please contact the City of Jordan at (952) 492-2535.  Building code questions can be directed to the Building Inspector by calling (763) 479-1720.
