Demolition Permits are required for:

  • Any removal of walls
  • Destruction of any buildings

If a permit is required, this guide may help you through the permit process. A Flow Chart is also available for your assistance.

A Demolition Permit Package consists of:

  • One Demolition Permit Application with a description of the demolition
  • One Demolition Notification Form submitted to Department of Air Quality Environmental Management (DAQEM) at least 10 working days prior to beginning work
  • One Dust Control Permit is required if the structure is 1000 square feet or larger
  • One Asbestos Abatement form required if 160 square feet or larger. Form must be submitted to DAQEM at least 10 days prior to beginning work. These forms can be found under Permits & Applications on the DAQEM website at

Preparing the documents

a. Print off or pick up a Demolition Permit Application. Fill out all information and sign application as contractor or owner / builder.

b. Obtain approval on all required Clark County DAQEM forms.

Submitting the Application

  1. Bring the Demolition Permit Application along with any required forms to the Mesquite Building Department, located in City Hall at 10 E. Mesquite Blvd.
  2. A $40 submittal fee must be paid when application is submitted. This fee will be applied to the permit.
  3. Plan review time is approximately 10-21 working days each time the application is submitted. Complete and accurate plans will shorten the time needed for review and resubmittal.

Corrections and Resubmitting

  1. If corrections are needed on the plans, the plan reviewer will call for you to pick up the plans. Plan Review Comments will be with the plans listing the corrections needed.
  2. Make the corrections and resubmit a full Demolition Permit Package, Comment Sheet, and Sign-Off Sheet. No further payment is needed for resubmittal.

Picking up the Approved Permit

  1. The Permit Technician will call when the permit is approved and tell you if additional fees are required.
  2. Come in to the Mesquite Building Department and pay additional fees, if any. You will be given a copy of the permit, an approved set of plans, the Site Plan, an inspection card and your receipt.
  3. If you are not sure of what inspections will be required, talk to the Permit Technician before you leave.
