Efficiently Enforcing Adopted Codes and Standards-
through knowledge, integrity,
teamwork and customer service-
one project at a time.

The Inspection Services section of the Building and Safety Division provides quality inspection services to developers, contractors, and homeowners. Our goal is to respond to the needs of the public in a timely manner, to ensure all model codes and City ordinances are complied with, and to enhance the safety and welfare of the community. Required inspections, defined by City Ordinance, follow the typical construction sequence and must be passed before work is covered. To understand and plan for required inspections, the following link provides a code excerpt defining inspection requirements.
