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
