Commercial Building Permit
Permits are needed for commercial properties for the following new projects:
Addition / Build out
Remodel / Repair
Regulated Pressure Zone
Along with a detailed scope of work, applicants should submit sketch plans when applying for permits.
Additions to the exterior of buildings will require Site Plan approvals.
Buildouts within the building will not go through the Site Plan process. Expect to see SAC and WAC charges to buildouts intensifying the existing use. Plumbing is not included in the buildout permit- apply for separate permit type ‘Plumbing Permit’.
This requires planning and zoning approvals before any building permit is released.
In most cases, a racking permit triggers the need for new or improved fire sprinklers. Apply for a sprinkler permit under permit type ‘Fire Sprinkler’ or contact the Fire Department at 763-428-3500.
Submit roof plans, bracket plans and setbacks from the roofs edge with the solar permit.
Provide the scope of work. Existing conditions, proposed installation materials and roof plan.
Regulated Pressure Zone
This should be moved into the Plumbing Permit (keep in right now). I have no idea what this really is. Inquiry in to Dan Janish
Apply for this permit when installing an irrigation system on commercial property or on HOA land within a residential development.
Include existing and proposed building layouts as well as the materials used for the remodel.
If your request does not fit into any category, please contact City Hall to see if the ‘other’ permit type is right for your request
All Commercial Building Permits must be reviewed by city staff and our building inspectors. Most permits have a turnaround time of a 7-10 days, but depending on the complexity of the project, it may take longer.
Once a permit has been issued a final inspection needs to be scheduled an inspection with Metro West at 763-479-1720.
Create an account and log into the Rogers Permit Portal. Choose “Commercial Building Permit” as the application type and fill in the form to apply.
Call City Hall at 763-428-2253
The City of Rogers is no longer the owner and operator of the Rogers Wastewater Treatment Facility. Metropolitan Council Environmental Services is now the owner and operator of the plant, and will be responsible for making Sewer Availability Charge (SAC) Determinations for Commercial and Industrial projects within the City of Rogers.
The City of Rogers has always used the same method of SAC calculation as MCES, so contractors, building owners, and businesses should not notice any difference in determinations. In order to get a building permit the applicant must provide the City with a SAC Determination Letter from MCES, and submittal requirements can be found at www.metrocouncil.org/SACforms.
