The City of Excelsior issues a combination permit for all residential construction projects. General contractors or homeowners doing their own work will pay for and be issued all applicable permits for work included in their project at the time the building permit is issued with the exception of electrical (Building, Plumbing, Mechanical, Sewer and Water, etc.). Separate permits will only be issued when there is no related building permit for the work necessary.
Building Permit Applications should be completed and submitted for all projects including but not limited to:
- new construction
- basement finishes
- additions and alterations
- accessory structures
- structural changes
- gas fireplaces
- siding and roofing
**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. You can search Carver County Property Information or Hennepin County Property Maps to find the correct city)**
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.
