Scottsdale City Council adopted and amended the following codes with an effective date of January 1, 2017.  Standard plans must be updated to the new codes or permits cannot be issued.

Rates and fees - for more information visit fee listings online. Final fees will be calculated at the time of permitting.

Submit your project pre-applications online.

All property owners applying for a permit for new construction will be required to submit a properly completed Owner Builder Form  (PDF) before a building permit will be issued.

An owner builder who is improving the property for sale will be required to have a valid City of Scottsdale Transaction Privilege (sales) Tax License and to provide that license number on the declaration form. Contact Tax Audit at 480-312-2400 for further information.
