Building Permits, Design Review, Zoning

To apply for a building permit, call 205-254-2224 or go to the permits desk at City Hall. Do not do any work on your home without inquiring as to whether you need a building permit or not. You may also need to go through Design Review with the City and review with the Local Historic Advisory Committee of the Neighborhood Association and/or the Zoning and Planning Committee of the Neighborhood Association or the city.
