Permit and Inspection Requirements
A building permit is required for most renovation or construction work in the City of Mission including 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. Use the Building Permit Application Checklist to make sure you have what you need for a successful application.
By contractual agreement, Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS) performs building plan review and inspection services for the City of Mission. 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.
