Commercial Construction
Permits for Commercial Construction are the result of a two-phased review process for the Site Plan and the building(s) located on the site which can occur simultaneously.

Phase 1 entails the review of the Site Plan by the Development Review Committee (DRC). The Site Plan is a review of the entire site to make sure that items such as parking, landscaping, fire safety, drainage, and underground utilities are designed by a Professional Registered Engineer or Architect in accordance with our development standards. Any plats associated with the Site Plan must be recorded with the county of jurisdiction prior to approval of the Site Plan. 

The Development Review Committee Submittal Schedule and Development Review Committee (DRC) webpage will provide you the DRC deadline dates and information to initially submit a Master Site Plan or Site Plan. Master Site Plan & Site Plan Application and Site Plan Process Timeline.

Phase 2 entails the Building Department Plans Examiner and the Fire Marshal's Office to review the structure(s) which are located within the Site Plan. The review of the structures encompasses structural, mechanical and plumbing designs as well as electrical, fire safety, and floodplain and windstorm requirements as a result of League City's coastal location. Permits for commercial construction will be issued by the Building Department. During construction, periodic inspections will be made to verify that building standards are maintained and in accordance with approved drawings.

The Building Department's Commercial Construction page will help you find out more information regarding the submission or process for building plans or construction permits.
