The permits were available for remodeling existing kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms or basements; repairing or replacing roofs; making energy improvements such as adding insulation, replacing water heaters, furnaces or air conditioners or installing solar panels; and making exterior stucco or siding changes.

The permits are valid for 180 days.
