The city of Las Vegas will host its second annual “Homeowners Night” at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, at the Development Services Center, located at 333 N. Rancho Drive.
At the meeting residents can learn about how to obtain a permit for work previously performed on their homes, get information on what work requires a permit, and apply for permits for new work. Topics that will be discussed include:
• Permit applications
• Plans required for carports and walls
• Permits for water heaters and water softeners
• Permit fees
• Requesting inspections
• Inspection approvals
City staff members will be present to answer questions related to building permits, neighborhood issues and zoning violations. In addition, residents will also be able to take advantage of the city’s year-round amnesty program that allows homeowners to self-disclose non-permitted or non-code compliant work in their homes without experiencing any penalties for the required plan review and permit fees.
The city’s building codes are the minimum best practices approach to ensuring that when someone enters your home or business, their safety, health, usability, accessibility and comfort are reasonably assured. Plan reviews and permits for inspections are required by the city to ensure that these minimum standards are met.
