An MDRA is a permit that is required for all new single-family home construction projects, and for additions to an existing single-family home that involve 750 square feet or more of habitable space. The MDRA permit (PDF) is required before you can apply for a building permit. Garage additions are not habitable space and do not require an MDRA. For details on the MDRA process please see the MDRA handout.
Fees will vary with the size and scope of the project. The larger the residence, and the more water and sewer connections, the higher the Building Permit fee. There are building plan check and Building Permit fees. Please contact the Building Division for any estimates.
