PLEASE NOTE: Construction valuation shall include total value of work, including materials and labor, for which the permit is being sought, such as electrical, gas, mechanical, plumbing equipment and permanent systems. Construction valuation shall be estimated as set forth in the most current Building Valuation Data as published by the International Code Council, Inc. or an actual signed contract for the construction valuation may be used to determine the applicable fees. Construction valuation shall be calculated on the gross area of the building for new construction and the work areas for additions, alterations, rehabilitations, remodeling and renovations. For one- and two-family residential uses, unconditioned, open and covered areas will be calculated as Utility Occupancy. All permit fees for alterations, rehabilitations, remodeling and renovations shall be calculated the same as new construction, based on the work area. Construction valuation is subject to review and approval by the building official.

The extension shall be requested in writing prior to the abandonment date and justifiable cause demonstrated.
IV. A permit issued shall be constructed to be a license to proceed with the work and not as authority to violate, cancel, alter or set aside any of the provisions of the technical codes, nor shall issuance of a permit prevent the building official from thereafter requiring a correction of errors in plans, construction or violations of this code.
