Building & Safety Division

The Building and Safety Division is responsible for enforcing City standards governing the construction, alteration, and maintenance of buildings and structures. The services include permits such as building, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, energy, and accessibility. Building and Safety Division also provides plan checking, permit issuance, inspection and administration of abatement programs for substandard and unsafe structures, and providing state and local code administration interpretations.

The Division provides quality regulations for structures by pre-plan examination with a building designer, formal plan examination, and personal field inspection to ensure safety. The Division ensures adherence to uniform safety and energy standards in the construction, addition, or repair of buildings through plans examination and field inspections; provides accurate and prompt information to contractors, architects, engineers, and property owners regarding building, energy, and safety requirements. The Division also coordinates building plan check procedures of all City departments, and enforces building codes, and requires permits when suspect activities are observed in the field.

Plan Check Requirements:

Minor Tenant Improvement and/or Residential Additions.

Over the Counter Plan Check: Projects that are small or minor in scope of work and do not require calculations may be reviewed over the counter on a walk-in basis. Plan checker is available on Tuesdays & Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Our goal is to review as many small projects over the counter as possible. However, counter plan checks may not be conducted for projects when a project requires additional time and review.

Plan Submittal Application:  Permits requiring plan checks are issued after the plans have been reviewed and approved by applicable departments. The required reviews are based on the type of work of your project.
