Demolition Permit(s) (20YY-MSS-DEM-#####) are required:
When an entire structure is being demolished. There are some exceptions for storage areas that have no utlity or power connections:
Excluding, non-occupiable, non-vehicle storage, residential structures under 200 sqft.
Excluding, non occupiable, non-vehicle storage, commercial structures under 120 sqft.
For each structure being demolished on a lot. For example, applicants would need one permit for a house and one permit for the detached garage.
For mobile homes on a permanent foundation. Mobile homes may not require a demo permit, but do require permits for utility disconnections.
When partial demo work is occurring prior to the issuance of a building permit. For example, if you want to demo the interior of a space while your building permit is in review.
Partial demolition of an existing structure or unit that will occur as part of a residential or commercial building permit typically does not require a separate demo permit if all work will occur after the building permit is issued
A site plan indicating what structure(s) are being demoed is highly encouraged. You can take a screenshot or print an overhead view of the property from the Missoula County Property Information System.
