Scope and Content

This series contains registers documenting the issuing of building permits for various building construction projects in Salt Lake City. Entries are numbered consecutively in the chronological order in which the building permits were registered. The entry number coincided with the number of the building permit issued. In addition to the permit number, the registers record such information as the date of the permit, the property owner or individual applying for the permit, the architect on the project, the project builder, the address of the building, a very brief description of the type of building or project, and the estimated cost.

Arrangement

Chronological and Numerical according to permit number.

Custody History

Volumes [2] - [11] (1890-1927) of this series apparently came to the State Archives from Salt Lake City in 1975. They were microfilmed and the originals were put in the collection of the State Historical Society. The Division of State History transferred those volumes back to the State Archives in 2007. Volume [1] was in the custody of the State Archives by 1976, when it was microfilmed and the remaining volumes in the series have been in the custody of the State Archives since at least 1980.
