Blasting Permit

There are many different conditions and variables to new construction, especially along the Wasatch. The rugged terrain creates challenges to builders and, at times, blasting is necessary for the build. When a construction job requires blasting, a blasting permit is necessary. The Park City Fire District is involved in the plan review process and issues permits for builders in Summit County. We do not issue permits in the city limits of Park City.
