Permit Application Requirements

  • Plans. One (1) set of plans must be submitted with the application for residential work, and three (3) sets are required for commercial work.
  • Variances. If any setback requirements will be violated, a variance will be required. A Variance Request Application must accompany the building permit application.

  • Certificate of Appropriateness. If the structure is within the Historic District and the work is external, a Certificate of Appropriateness application must submitted to, and approved by, the Blanco Historic Preservation Commission.
