Talk to Us About Your Project

For large projects, you will need to read about the Pre-Application Conference where members from several departments can come together to talk to you about your idea. For smaller projects, you can just talk to someone in Building Inspections. If you don’t know which category your project falls within, email us! permits@georgetown.org
