Under what circumstances do I need to get a City of Douglas building permit?
You must get a building permit when you are adding on to an existing structure or moving any load-bearing walls. You must also get a permit to build any accessory building over 100 square feet.

A permit is not required to put up:

  • A deck that is less than 30 inches off of the ground

  • A fence that does not require a footing
