City Of Sparks



In the City of Sparks, a building permit is necessary to erect, construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, improve, remove, convert or demolish, equip, use, occupy or maintain any building or structure.

The plan review time needed for permit approval is determined by many factors, including the clarity and completeness of the application and the number of departments that are required to review the project. Plans and applications that are not complete cannot be accepted by Permit Services. To help expedite the review process, be sure your plans, specifications and applications are clear and complete.
