The City of Arnold requires construction permits for both commercial and residential structures, including, but not limited to buildings, fences, retaining walls, and signs. Only contractors licensed by the City may do work in Arnold.
You should submit permit applications at least two weeks prior to your anticipated start date. While, it is the City’s objective to process all applications within one to two business weeks, due to seasonal fluctuations, project scope or complexity, and the completeness and accuracy of the application, turnaround time may vary.
Whether commercial or residential, the cost of construction and the number of disciplines in the permit determines the permit fee. For assistance in determining the permit fee or for any other information, please contact the Department at 636-282-2378.
