I would like to submit an application for a residential remodel/addition/new construction. How do I get started?

Please contact Permit Assistant Kathy Roche at kroche@westlakehills.gov to determine if a pre-application meeting is needed. If so, you will then need to submit a completed Pre-Application Meeting Request Form. The purpose of a pre-application meeting is to go through general processes and Code requirements to point applicants in the right direction before getting too far into the plan development process. Small projects and interior-only projects typically do not require a pre-application meeting.

 When you are ready to turn in your building application, please contact Zoning & Planning Secretary Mark Littrell at (512) 327 – 3628 or by email at pzsec@westlakehills.org to help you determine the applicable application fees.  Turn in the permit applications in email in pdf form.  No hard copies are required.
