Do I need to obtain a permit for remodel work?

Most remodel work requires a permit.  You are not required to apply for a permit if you are doing non-structural work such as – painting, flooring, direct replacement of windows / doors, gutters or siding.  Landscape work does not require a permit, however, installation of an irrigation system or a retaining wall with a height of 4 feet or more does require a permit.  (This list may not be all inclusive, if you have questions, please contact the permit office.)
