General Permitting Process for Residential and Commercial Building
Please check the specific building code requirements in the City of West Lake Hills Code of Ordinances. Many of your questions can be answered there or in the FAQs. If you have questions about the application requirements or process please contact Mark Littrell at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kathy Roche at Kroche@westlakehills.gov After your application is deemed administratively compete, it can take up to 4 weeks to get your first round of comments. The applicant will then need to provide a comment response letter addressing each comment in addition to any revised documentation requested by the City. These two steps will be repeated until all the comments are addressed. Then the permit will be issued or denied.
