Certificate of Occupancy

A Certificate of Occupancy (CO) shows that a building is safe to be occupied. You need a CO for:

  • New construction.
  • Additions.
  • Alterations that impact exits or fire ratings.
  • Projects that change the use or occupancy of a building.

A CO is not required:

  • For existing one-or-two-family homes.
  • If the owner, tenant, or residents have changed but the building use remains the same.

Please visit our Certificate of Occupancy page for more information.
