A building permit is needed for a stoop if it is 30 inches from grade and frost footings are required. If a contractor is constructing the stoop, the city requires the contractor to be licensed with either the state or the City of Maplewood.


Documentation required when applying for a stoop building permit:

  • Building Permit Application (PDF) - Including project valuation
  • 3 copies of construction plans - Including a footing plan
  • 3 copies of a certificate of survey or site plan (PDF) - Showing proposed stoop and all distances to property lines and other buildings
