Basic Plan Review Requirements
Applicants must provide 3 sets of plans: one to remain on file, in digital PDF format, one for the owners’ files, and one to remain on the building site for the duration of the project. Note: All plans must include a construction materials list and installation or construction techniques that clearly demonstrate compliance with the Louisiana State Uniform Construction Code in accordance with ACT 12 of the 2005 First Extraordinary Session of the Louisiana Legislation.
Note: Compliance with all applicable codes is the sole responsibility of the owner. While the City of Patterson makes every effort to review plans and inspect construction to ensure total code compliance, the City makes no warranties and guarantees against any violations that may have been missed during the review process. Owners are NOT relieved of legal responsibility by virtue of the permitting and inspection process.
NOTE: Owners signing affidavits to build their own homes are required to be on site building the project at all work times. Simply subbing out various phases of construction to other contractors without working on site is illegal. All affidavits are sent to the State of Louisiana Contractors Licensing Board for their review and enforcement, with all violations subject to corrective action, fines, and penalties as provided under State Law.
