Permit Process


Permits are required for a variety of new construction, remodeling, and site work activities within the City of Missouri City. Obtaining a permit allows professional building code specialists and inspectors to review construction plans for compliance with life safety and structural building codes. Permitting protects property values by ensuring that construction activities are performed at least to recognized industry standards.
