Building Inspection & Permits
Structures such as patio covers, covered outdoor kitchens or pergolas may be built as long as they meet setback criteria for that lot, obtain approval from the ARC and are submitted for permitting. Materials used will be governed by the ARC. Read the Lantana Design Guidelines to determine the setback and specifications for your neighborhood.
The District staff will be able to clarify any and all inspection requirements; you can either call the district office or review the Single Family Permit Guidelines. For more specific inspection questions and specific codes enforced by the District, you can go to the DCFWSD Inspection Guidelines.
These type gatherings are considered “Special Events” by the District and are required to be permitted. A Block Party Permit application must be filled out and approved prior to the event taking place. Block Party Permits are $50.00.
A driveway permit application must be filled out with a plan attached to the permit. The plan (8 ½” x 11”) shall include width of the existing and proposed driveway, distance from the neighbor’s property, etc. The fees are based upon the value of work.
