Construction & Inspection Process

All construction drawings and associated documents must be submitted to Community Development permitting staff. They process and route the submittal to all appropriate reviewing agencies of the Consolidated Review Center for official review.

Once your project receives approval from the Consolidated Review Center, you will be issued a permit for your project. After permit issuance, construction may begin on your project. During this phase, inspections are required to ensure that your project is in compliance with the approved plans and/or all rules and regulations governing construction.
