In many cases yes. Nothing is needed to act as the General Contractor, however for an owner to be added to an Electrical, Mechanical, or Plumbing permit, you must show proof of your Homestead Exemption on file with the Central Appraisal District.

The time it takes to get a building permit depends on the type of permit. Generally residential permits are issued in 5 to 7 business days. Commercial projects take a little more time. The typical time frame is 10 business days for the initial review and 10 business days for a re-review.
Permit applications along with issued permits will expire if a permit has not been issued or if work has not been started within 180 days after its issuance, or if the work is suspended or abandoned for a period of 180 days after the time the work is started.
No, keep it for your records.
Another application and permitting fee must be submitted to the Building Inspection Division. If there are changes to the original scope of work, a new set of drawings must be submitted and an additional plan review will be performed. We strongly recommend requesting an extension prior to the expiration date. All extension requests can be requested by email.
Apply online through MyGovernmentOnline and attach all supporting documentation as PDFs to the submittal for review. For commercial submittals, the deadline to apply is by noon on Monday, with the exception of holidays, the deadline will then default to the following day.
Our office is located at the Cedar Park City Hall Campus, 450 Cypress Creek Road, Building 1.
Once your building permit is issued you will be able to schedule an inspection through MyGovernmentOnline. Inspections scheduled before 4 pm will be listed on the following business day's schedule. We cannot guarantee same day inspections. If the inspection is not completed the day it is scheduled, it will automatically roll to the next business day.
If the permit was issued for a gas leak repair or emergency electrical service repair, the Building Inspection Division will dispatch an inspector once we are notified that the work has been completed.
The inspector performing the inspection will leave a copy of the inspection tag on the job site and notifications of results will be sent to via email and/or phone call, according to the contact information you shared in your MyGovernmentOnline account.
You may also log into your MyGovernmentOnline account to see your inspection results. After clicking on "View Permit," the results will be located under Inspections History. Please click on the printer icon to print any inspection notes the inspector may have documented.
