Plans that are not simple enough to be issued ‘over the counter’ are taken in for routing and review. To have your project reviewed, bring your completed [Building Permit Application] form, plans including additional materials, and required fees to the Permit Service Center. The City of Ruston currently collects fees at the time of permit issuance on building permits. All other permit applications require a review fee deposit to be paid at the time of application submittal. Contact the permit service center at (253) 759-3544 ext 105 to determine the required permits needed and the applicable fees due. Subsequently, when review fees are paid or a complete application is submitted, your project application status is changed to “Under Review,” and within 1-2 working days your plans are assigned to review groups.
