This is an application to be granted permission for temporary trailers, fences, loading areas, sales centers, or parking for construction/land development purposes. This permit is good for two years.
Please follow this order of events:
- You must already have an active building permit for a construction project (a house, a multi-use development, etc.) before applying for this TOP.
- Apply below for your temporary needs relating to the construction of the above project.
- If approved, you will then need to apply for a secondary building permit for the structure/fence, etc. that you're proposing. This includes sales centers, trailers, on-site offices, etc. These instructions will be given to you at the end of the TOP process, below. NOTE: Parking lots may not need a secondary permit, you will be advised if this is the case.
TIP: This permit can not be used to secure vacant land, unless you've already been approved to build on that land. This application used to be called a Temporary Use Permit (TUP), but is now referred to as a Temporary Occupancy Permit (TOP). This is not an application for a Temporary Use Permit (TUP - Zoning), or a "Temporary Use on Vacant Land". The TUP applies to activating vacant properties for temporary uses such as structures, tents, kiosks, temporary exhibition areas, and other similar uses which deal in the areas of food, arts, vocation, culture, and entertainment.
