Codes Administration - Generators


Are you interested in installing a generator on your property? If so, a building permit will be required.

A permit application may be obtained in person from the Codes Administration Division at City Hall or by using this permit application. The form must be filled out completely and returned with the following required information:

  • A completed permit application.

  • A detailed site plan which indicates property lines, drawn to scale. The site plan needs to note the location of the proposed generator as well as the required screening and location of the transfer switch.

  • Information will need to be provide on the size and material of gas line used to provide gas to the generator.

  • If a contractor is doing the work, the contractor must have a valid City of Leawood license. They may also be required to be licensed by Johnson County.
