All building permits are required to have an inspection conducted by our trained, professional inspection staff to review:

  • footings, foundation, plumbing,
  • mechanical, electrical,and structural frames,
  • insulation, lathe, and drywall.


Building inspections ensure construction meets all municipal ordinances and state building codes. Inspections also ensure 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 are added.


For building inspection hours, please visit the Hours of Service page.  Overtime 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.


Scheduling Process
