Licenses & Permits


These are the only types of businesses for which the City of Lakeville requires licenses:

Cannabis Licensing

A new law enacted at the end of the 2023 legislative session legalizes adult–use cannabis in Minnesota and establishes a regulatory framework over the cannabis industry. You can find more information on our City Clerk's webpage.


Purchase permits online that do not require a plan review at ePermits.

NOTE: ePermits are not available for fences, sheds and above-ground pools. Download the Zoning Permit Application (PDF) for those projects.

Replacement Water Heater/Water Softeners/Furnaces/AC

For information on submitting inspection photos for replacement water heaters/water softeners/furnaces/ACs, go to our Building Inspections for instructions.


Surveys can be accessed online by searching for the address you're looking for.
