The world-famous Las Vegas Strip is only one 4.2-mile stretch of land, yet it houses fifteen of the world’s 25 largest hotels, or a total of over 62,000 hotel rooms! As you can imagine, having all these enormous resort properties on such a small parcel of land can make for some serious parking concerns. The Clark County Parking Study published in June 2015 offers a comprehensive, detailed look at the parking structures and surface lots of Las Vegas hotels and resorts. All the Las Vegas resorts located on the Strip fall within the jurisdiction of Paradise Township, while the local off-Strip resorts are located in Sunrise…

In most towns and cities around the world, there is a Code Enforcement or a Community Development department that handles all the building permits for the location. You can obtain more information about the exact person to deal with for building permits by visiting your town hall and asking for additional help, but the permits are usually kept within the same building. Just ask who you have to speak with about permits and you’ll be directed to the person responsible for recording permits most of the time.

Storing Building Permits After you receive an approved building permit, a record of that permit is stored on either the city computers or on file in paper form in some smaller jurisdictions…
