Building Permits

Getting Started

The Logan City Building Department's mission is to ensure that buildings are constructed to code and protect the safety of occupants. Thousands of inspections are performed each year by certified professional inspectors who implement the standards of adopted building codes. Every new building built within Logan City limits requires a building permit and all associated inspections. This thorough process allows the City of Logan to expand and change in the safest way possible.
