Prior to building permits, building permit application cards were issued. They contain the architect or designer and contractor's names, estimated project cost, legal description of the property, and description of the building or project. These cards are filed by original owner's last name, and year that permit was issued.
These permits are issued as official building authorization of a variety of actions: construction, demolition, the installation of plumbing, electrical or mechanical equipment and the placement of barricades. They contain inspection request, certificates of occupancy and any pertinent information relating to the project. They may also contain water sources, sewer system, flood plain, and tank certificates. Accessible by address.
