Permit & Inspection Requirements
A building permit is required for most renovation or construction work in the City of Mission. This includes alterations to the electrical, plumbing, or mechanical systems of a building or structure. Exceptions to this requirement may include minor non-structural exterior repairs, interior finish work, and flat work such as sidewalks and driveways.
Beginning in 2008 the City entered into an agreement with Johnson County, Kansas for the performance of building plan review and inspection services. However, all building permit applications, requests for inspections, and questions should be directed to the City of Mission Community Development Department at Mission City Hall.
The City of Mission also requires all contractors doing work in the City to be licensed with the Johnson County Contractor Licensing program. Licenses will be verified at the time of permit application.
For assistance in determining if a permit is required or to inquire about a permit, please contact the Community Development Department at 913-676-8360.
