Permits are not required for
- Tents used for recreational camping
- Tents less than 350 square feet in total area
In many cases, larger tents, such as those rented for weddings and similar functions, do require a building permit and are inspected for safety by the Building Official and or the Fire Marshal. In some cases, the tent rental companies will take out the permit.
If you aren't sure if a permit may be required in a specific situation please contact the Building Department to verify if it will be necessary.
