Submitting Your Construction Plans
To apply for a building permit, you should meet with a Permit Center staff member at our offices to discuss your project. We review all construction plans to ensure compliance with city codes and federal and state laws and regulations.
After our initial meeting, normal review takes up to 16 working days.
We need the following information to review your plans when you come to see us:
- Completed Permit Application
- Plan Review Fee, if required. Please refer to the Vertical Construction section of the Development Use Fee Schedule. The City of Buckeye accepts Visa®, Discover® MasterCard®, cash, checks or money orders.
The Buckeye City Council has adopted an updated Development User Fee Schedule. These new fees are effective January 3, 2014.
