All building permits are required to have an inspection. Building inspections are conducted by our trained professional inspection staff. Types of inspections provided, include: footings, foundation, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, structural frame, insulation, lathe and drywall, etc.


The inspections are necessary to ensure that construction meets all municipal ordinances and State Building codes. Through this process, the City also ensures that new and remodeled buildings are constructed according to the plans approved by the Community Development Department. All building inspections are included in the permit fee, so no additional costs will be added for this process.


For building inspection hours, please visit the Hours of Service pageOvertime inspections may be requested; additional fees apply for overtime inspections. 


For projects requiring Special Inspection, as determined by the project engineer, please see the Special Inspection Package.
