The City of Chicago is currently in Phase Four: "Gradually Resume." Many City services have adjusted hours or locations and may require health screens prior to entering their physical
spaces. Please call ahead or visit any department's website to get additional details, or visit chicago.gov/covid-19.
Builders, whether it be the homeowner personally or a contractor they have hired, must apply for permits before any building can take place. The Standard Plan Review program or the Easy Permit Process is a place to begin the permit process, depending on the scope of the work.
