Building & Sign Permits
Residential and commercial property owners are required to obtain permits from both Prince George's County and the City of Bowie for most improvements or alterations. Permits must be issued prior to construction.
|Projects requiring County & City permits include (but are not limited to):|
Applicants should contact the Prince George's County Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE) at 301-636-2050 to determine if a project requires a building permit and if it does, what documents are necessary to apply.
City permits are required for any work that requires a County permit except for plumbing, electrical, HVAC or fire inspection permits. Complete the Bowie Permit Application and upload the County permit and approved plans electronically. In person applications are accepted at the Community Services window in Bowie City Hall as well.
Application fee payments are preferred, by credit card over the phone at 301-809-3008, but we will accept checks through USPS mail.
