Building


All permit inspections in occupied residences are suspended.
Emergency situations and commercial permits will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Please note, this does not suspend the need for permitting and inspection overall.

For Planning and Zoning questions please send an email to  planning@huttotx.gov and for Permit, Inspection and Building questions please send an email to building@huttotx.gov and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

The Permits and Inspections Division of the Development Services Department performs the review of all residential and commercial site plan and building plan applications. They issue residential and commercial construction related permits and perform on-site inspections. Our team of building inspectors visit all construction sites within the City to ensure compliance with building, energy, mechanical, environmental, drainage, erosion control, plumbing, electrical, refrigeration, and housing/zoning standards leading up to the final certificate of occupancy.


Please contact your Home Owners Association for additional requirements and/or deed restrictions that may apply to your project even if a city permit is not required.

If you do not have a Home Owners Association, please see your deed restrictions which are usually located in your closing documents. You can also contact the Williamson County Clerk for a copy of your property's deed restrictions.

How much is the permit?
Most permits are based on the valuation of the project. We require you to determine valuation by the Building Valuation Table provided by the International Code Council. 

After the building valuation is determined, please see the Development Fee Schedule to determine permit costs. If you would like assistance in the calculation of the permit, you can email us at building@huttotx.gov
