Building Division

The Building Division's mission is to partner with our construction industry and property owners to ensure safety in the built environment. The initial step is accomplished through an interactive process beginning when you visit our office and meet with our permit technicians. Our friendly staff will assist you with the process of application, plan review, permit issuance, and help find the answers to your questions. Once a permit is issued, construction may begin and our certified inspection staff will assist you through the inspection process by providing timely services. 

See the links below for all our application forms and helpful brochures for your next project and please let us know what you think of our new website!

Digital Plan Review
Along with using the ePermitting system we are also performing our plan reviews digitally. With this change we are requiring all plans that can be submitted digitally be submitted digitally. These plans can be emailed to lgbuilding@cityoflagrande.org. If the file size exceeds 20MB contact us to make other arrangements to transfer the plans. The document size to be uploaded onto our system is limited to 200MB so some plans may need to be broken down to smaller sizes.
