Construction Bean

Inspections 
The city helps ensure that construction of safe buildings and protects community character through building code regulations.  The Inspection Division administers these regulations through permits and inspections.

Permits
Building and related permits ensure that projects will be constructed according to national recognized standards.  The standards are designed to protect buildings from fire and to ensure the safety of all building occupants.  Review of permit applications also ensures that projects meet zoning requirements, such as yard coverage, setbacks and building height.

Some permits such as residential electrical, plumbing, mechanical, building re-siding, re-roofing and window replacements can be issued at the time of application.  Other residential permit applications take up to 10 working days to process.  Applications for permits should be submitted well in advance of the scheduled start date.  This will allow time for the city staff to offer assistance through the process and issue the permit at the start of the project.  This is especially true during summer construction season.
