Before any building or construction may begin, a sewer use and drainage permit (SUDP) must be obtained for each building and/or individual tenant associated with a project. This includes such things as connections to the city’s sanitary and storm sewers, and erosion control. This review and permit is separate from the building permit, and requires a separate submittal. The SUDP must be issued prior to receiving the commercial or residential construction permits.
For a simple project at a single-family house or duplex that may include building and zoning code reviews. Examples include: shed, porches/patios, interior remodels and basement finishes.
