Building Permit & License Information

Parts of nine communities get their mail through the Excelsior Post Office and most requests for permits are actually for properties located in another municipality. Please verify that the property you're requesting a permit for is within the Excelsior city limits. (Helpful tip: any address with more than three digits isn't in Excelsior.) If the City receives a permit and fee for a property that is not in Excelsior, we will notify you, but the information will not be mailed back to you.
