The city has put together a nice bundle of paperwork for the backyard coop permitting/inspection process. I’ve taken pics of the sheets from the bundle for any prospective chicken owner to peruse before putting together their coop:
The building permit needs to be filled out, much like you would if you were building a shed.
In addition to filling out the building permit and chicken coop application, they require a basic site plan indicating that the location of the coop meets the dimensional requirements and a plan for the coop’s construction demonstrating that the material requirements are being met. The fee for the permit is $35 annually, and is paid when you submit your application to the city. You can schedule your coop inspection at the same time. The permit and application are available at City Hall, which is also where you turn in the completed paperwork.
Putting together my site plan tonight, and should be able to turn in the completed paperwork tomorrow. Can’t wait to have everything done and legal!
