What does an "Intent to Build" placard mean?

If you see a placard stating "Intent to Build" posted at a property this serves as public notice that plans are on file with the Building Department for proposed construction. It could be for a/an:

  • Addition
  • Fence
  • Garage
  • New home
  • Pool
  • Other exterior home project

Inspecting Plans & Filing Complaints

The plans will be available at the Building Department for inspection. Unless a complaint in writing is filed within 10 days of the notices’ posting with the Building Director, alleging that the work proposed is so located or of such character that it will substantially injure the existing use or value of the neighboring property, a permit will be issued, provided the plans comply with zoning and building codes. Not all projects require the 10-day intent to build posting.
