CONSTRUCTION PERMITS

Construction permits are required for all new construction and remodels. Construction permits are based on mandatory Fire, Building, Mechanical, and Electrical codes within the Town of Youngtown or Maricopa County, depending on where the project is located.

Because Sun City is not a “City”, but a county community, The Sun City Fire District issues permits and performs inspections on all construction activities in the area of Fire and Life Safety.
