Cement Slab/ Patio

A permit is needed for a cement slab or patio only if a garage or structure will be placed on it in the future. Drainage is a concern with the placement of the slab. Also, see the single-family lot guidelines (PDF) for standard setbacks from your property line.

Documentation required when applying for a slab building permit:
  • Building permit application (PDF) - including project valuation
  • 3 copies of construction plans - including footing plan
  • 3 copies of a certificate of survey or site plan (PDF) - showing proposed slab and all distances to property lines and other buildings
