As with all City services, Building Inspections is currently under OPCON1. This means we are NOT open to the general public and we are operating half-staff for all plan review, inspections and administrative team services. This is to reduce COVID19 exposure to the general public and City employees.
All customers are encouraged to register with our new Customer Access Portal (CAP) to schedule inspections, apply for permits (coming soon) and update business licenses.
Important Information When Scheduling Through CAP
All sub-trade inspections - electrical, mechanical, plumbing and fuel-gas - are scheduled under the project’s building permit. Please go into the building permit to find and schedule sub-trade inspections.
All stand-alone trade permit inspections - electrical, mechanical, plumbing and fuel-gas - are scheduled within the trade permit.
Requirements Before Inspections Can Occur
The address and permit placard must be posted and visible from the road or street and the placard accessible to the inspector.
Plans stamped as "Field Copy" and any updates from the Building Inspections Office are to be on site for all inspections. The plans shall remain on the job site throughout the remainder of the job.
Toilet facilities (within 300 feet of the job site) shall be available.
Silt fencing for erosion control must be in place prior to clearing or grading.
