Is a Building Permit required for a parking lot?
Yes, parking lots must comply with applicable requirements of the Ohio Building Code. If a parking lot is being built in conjunction with a new or renovated building and the parking lot is included on the plans for the building, the building permit will include the parking lot. If a parking lot is planned as a stand-alone project, then a building permit must be obtained for the parking lot. A permit application can be found online at our Building Permit Forms page under Building/Zoning Application. Parking lots may also be subject to requirements related to Zoning, Engineering, Fire, and other codes. For questions about what other requirements there may be for the City of Dayton, contact the Small Business Advocate.
