Obtaining a Permit & Plan Review
The Building Division makes every effort to complete the required plan review within five to ten working days; however, during times of increased workload this process may take longer. All plans are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. The Building Division will contact the applicant when the permit is completed. Building plan review may take up to two (2) weeks during the busy season. If Zoning review is also required than please allow extra time. To speed the process of plan review than all information must be included at the time of submitting the plans to the City. If additional information is requested than both Building and Zoning plan review is put on hold for that project. Commercial construction projects must also pass plan review conducted by the East Bethel Fire Chief. Please plan accordingly as construction cannot begin until after Plan Review has been completed.
You may submit a Permit Application by either dropping them off at City Hall with payment, or mail the application and payment to 2241 221st Ave NE, East Bethel, MN 55011. If you mail it in, please provide either an email address or a self-address envelope with a stamp. Thank you.
