Permits require filing an application, submitting a fee, and when appropriate, plans prepared by a licensed architect or engineer. Doing work without a permit can result in prosecution and fines. If the Building Department
denies a permit for noncompliance with the Zoning Code, there is an appeals process. The Zoning Board of Appeals, which is an independent body, reviews these appeals and decides them on a case-by-case basis.
