Building permits are necessary to ensure that zoning requirements, fire and structural safety standards and other building standards are met, primarily for health and safety reasons. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure that a building permit is obtained when required.Through the use of building permits, the City of Reedley can regulate the type of construction in the community and promote the use of proper building standards. The building permit process protects the individual’s interests as well as those of the community at large and provides for the construction of safe and sound structures in accordance with the California Building Code.In addition, evidence of a building permit is often necessary to obtain financing from lending agencies. Fire and liability insurance damages may not be paid in some cases where permits were not obtained and improvements do not meet regulations.No person shall construct or demolish a building or cause a building to be constructed or demolished in the City of Reedley unless a permit has been issued by the City of Reedley Building Official.
