To find out if you will need a Building Permit for any work you plan to do on your property, you will need to complete the appropriate City application (Architectural Review Form or Minor Architectural Form). Your project must be approved by the Planning Department before you will receive a permit for the work.
The Nevada County Building Department at the Rood Center will issue your building permits (after first being approved by the City).
Contact City staff to help you through this process (530-265-2496).
Note that all flags, banners and signs (including free standing A-frame signs) are under the City’s control. Contact the Planning Department to find out what uses are allowed in the City.
