Building Inspections

Building Inspections is a division of Planning and Development Services tasked with overseeing the building phase of development by reviewing plans, processing permits, and performing inspections. The division's mission is to ensure that the construction, alteration, or maintenance of buildings conforms to recognized standards for building safety and quality of life.

Contractor Registration

All General Contractors are required to register with the City every year and pay a fee. Trade Contractors who hold a current state license are required to register with the City and provide information regarding the license holder. 

To register with the city, you must create an online account and email a Contractor Registration form in to the Permit Technicians.

Update to Inspection Scheduling:

Next Day Inspections: Reasonable efforts are made to complete inspections on the day requested (when requests are received by 7 a.m. on the day of the inspection). Circumstances sometimes require some inspections to be moved to the following day. If this happens, the inspection will be rescheduled automatically. Check the online system for inspection results and updates.
