Almost all contractors must be licensed with the State of Utah. The State of Utah requires that we confirm that the General Contractor/Builder, Electrical Contractor, Plumbing Contractor and the Mechanical Contractor are licensed. If you hire a General Contractor or Construction Company to build your home, it is their responsibility to assure West Valley City through the Contractor Verification Form that the sub-contractors are licensed.
If you are the owner and builder you are not required to have a license and you may do all the work yourself.
Insures there is no friable asbestos in the building, or that friable asbestos has been removed by appropriate means by a contractor licensed for asbestos removal. Insures that all utility lines to the building have been terminated at a safe location by the utility companies. Removes the demolished building from the State tax roles. Insures that appliances and electrical devices that might contain hazardous materials have been disposed of properly.
Request an Asbestos check and a predemolition inspection. The Asbestos contractor you hire must be approved by the State. The Asbestos Coordinator will inspect your structure to determine if your structure contains friable asbestos and/or appliances or devices with hazardous materials.
The coordinator will help you obtain an approval from the State Division of Air Quality for your demolition permit. Once the State Division of Air Quality has confirmation that no asbestos or hazardous materials exists, State Division of Air Quality will notify West Valley City.
You Must request termination of utilities as follows:
For termination of natural gas lines call Questar Dispatcher at (801) 324-5111For termination of sewer and water lines call Granger Hunter Improvement District at (801)968-3551. Utility companies will notify Misty Jenkins at West Valley City at (801) 963-3475, when all utility lines have been terminated in preparation for demolition.
Confirm with Misty Jenkins of West Valley City at (801)963- 3475 that approvals for demolition have been received by the city from: State Division of Air Quality Questar Company
Once you have confirmed that West Valley City has received all necessary approvals for demolition, you may submit your application for a demolition permit.
The West Valley City Building Inspections Division is located in room 220 at City Hall, 3600 South Constitution Blvd. Office Hours are from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays.
The permit can be issued immediately if the approvals have been received by the Building Inspections Division. In order to issue the demolition permit, the legal owner of the building must sign the permit application.
If the owner is using a contractor to perform the demolition, the application must contain the contractor's company name, State license number and signature of the contractor. The cost of the demolition permit is $53.00.
*If you have further questions about demolitions call Misty Jenkins at (801)963-3475
Note: State law allows a property owner to build a single family dwelling for their own use (not for sale). No contractor would be required, therefore, no contractor verification form would be required. You must own the property in order to obtain a permit for the construction of a single family dwelling, as an owner/builder.
You may have to demolish the structure if it is found that the structure is located on your property in violation of existing city ordinances. Who needs a permit?

Redevelopment. Encourage private and public investment in previously developed areas that are blighted. Economic Development. Work with businesses to increase the jobs available in the community and the state as a whole. Housing Development. Increase the amount and variety of affordable housing within the community.
First, a blight survey area is identified for study. The study entails gathering information on the condition of buildings and improvements, the existence of hazardous materials, social factors and safety concerns.
Second, the RDA board holds an evidentiary hearing to determine whether or not all or part of the area qualifies as blighted. If an area is blighted, it is eligible for redevelopment assistance. "Blight" is a legal term defined in the Utah Neighborhood Development Act.
Third, the RDA prepares a redevelopment plan and project area budget to identify how redevelopment would be encouraged. The planning process varies in each community. Typically planning includes formal or informal discussions with property owners, investors, taxing agencies, community planners and others to identify planning objectives, strategies and implementation costs.
Fourth, the planning commission for the community reviews the redevelopment plan to assure it conforms to the community's master plan.
Fifth, the RDA board holds one or more public hearings to obtain comments and suggestions on the proposed plan and budget. The RDA board and the community council or commission then adopt, adopt with modifications or reject the plan. Adopting the plan establishes a redevelopment project area.
Sixth, if the plan includes the use of tax increment, a committee of representatives from the affected taxing agencies approves, approves with changes, or rejects the project area budget.
RDA's can use up to 20% of the tax increment generated by an economic development or redevelopment project area to encourage the development of affordable housing throughout the community. RDA's use tax increment as it becomes available to stimulate housing rehabilitation, adaptive re-use and new development within redevelopment project areas.
First, an area is targeted for economic development. This is called a "survey area."
Second, the RDA prepares an economic development plan and project area budget describing the economic development project to be accomplished as a result of RDA participation.
Third, the community planning commission reviews the plan to be certain it conforms to the community's master plan.
Fourth, the RDA board holds one or more public hearings to obtain comments and suggestions on the proposed plan and budget. The RDA board and the community council or commission then adopt, adopt with modifications or reject the plan. Adopting the plan establishes an economic development project area.
Fifth, if the plan includes the use of tax increment, a committee of representatives from the affected taxing agencies approves, approves with changes, or rejects the project area budget.
