Original Art Mural Permits

Inspection Process


Planning and Zoning staff will conduct the inspections for murals. If structural review is required, a separate structural inspection will take place.

When the mural is completed and ready for inspection, the applicant contacts the assigned Planning and Zoning staff planner.

It is important to call for the inspection as the mural permit expires if no inspection has taken place within 12 months of the permit being issued. A one-time extension of the permit may be allowed.
