Do I need a building permit to add a deck to my house?

Yes, you need to fill out a permit form and provide the city with a complete plan showing the lot, house on the lot, the deck on the house and lot, the setbacks from the lot lines and the side view of the deck showing the height and railing type that maybe needed (10 feet from the side lot line and 15 feet from the rear lot line) (section 14.04, section 19).
