Building Fee Overview

The City of Kingman Development Services issues Building Permits. A function within the process of permits issuance is the collection of fees due based on City ordinances pertaining to other departmental or investment fees.
Many fees are calculated based on:

    • square footage of building and lot,
    • type of construction,
    • occupancy type,
    • number of plumbing fixtures
    • size of water meter
    • total cost of construction
    • impact on community

While the web is useful in giving general information about City of Kingman fees it is not intended to be the sole source or final word on total fees due for projects that are being budgeted.
Please be aware that we will be more than happy to provide information and general estimates of costs of permits when you provide required background information.
The general estimates are only based on the information you provide and are subject to review and adjustment once you submit an application for permit.
