Purchase Permits Online

Contractors doing work in the City of Ashland can obtain non-plan review, residential electrical, plumbing, and mechanical permits online using the State's ePermitting website:

Plan Submittals

Plans are taken in at the Community Development front counter between 8:00 AM - 3:30 PM Monday through Friday. The plans are reviewed at the front counter by one of the building inspectors on staff using either a residential checklist or a commercial checklist to determine that the minimum required information is provided. The plan review process involves a review by the Planning Division for land use approval, the Public Works/Engineering Division for any work relating to the public right-of-way, and the Fire Department for issues relating to potential access and hydrant location and flow concerns. 

Residential plans are typically reviewed by all Departments within 3 to 4 weeks from the date of submittal. Depending on the complexity of the project and the completeness of plans, commercial reviews take roughly 4 to 8 weeks from submittal through fee calculation.

Over-the-Counter Permits

The Ashland Planning and Building Divisions have a residential "over the counter" permit day each Thursday morning between 8:30 AM and 11:30 AM. This permit process is intended to allow applicants to speak directly with both a Building Division Plan Review Specialist and a City Planner, if necessary, and issue permits for small projects without a submittal, review, and issue process that is required for larger projects. Click Here for an information sheet on the Over the Counter Permit Process.
