The Planning and Development Department continues to take steps to minimize the spread of COVID-19 while still providing services. To support efforts to protect the community, we have expanded the remote inspection program to include the following inspections:

SINGLE FAMILY DWELLINGS

  • Reinspection for non-life safety items
  • Temporary construction pole service
  • Replacement of electrical HVAC units
  • Replacement of HVAC gas units (eligible for a partial approval. Final on-site approval will be required)
  • Replacement of electrical water heater
  • Water and sewer trenches for repair projects
  • Water and sewer trenches for new projects
  • Electrical trenches for new or repair projects

ROUGH-INS

  • Trade inspections (electrical, mechanical, plumbing and/or framing) and rough-in inspections for single family dwellings (deck repairs, remodel, and renovation projects)
  • Trade inspections (electrical, mechanical, plumbing and/or framing) and rough-in inspections for single family dwelling additions and deck projects

NON-RESIDENTIAL (COMMERCIAL)

  • Reinspection for non-life safety items
  • Temporary construction pole service

For currently scheduled inspections, you or your contractor will be contacted via telephone and offered the option for a remote inspection. This will allow field staff to perform the inspection without entering your home. Field staff will guide you through the process via your video conferencing tool of choice (Facetime, Skype, etc.).

Please note that remote inspections are not mandatory and customers who do not wish to participate in this voluntary program can discuss options with field staff once they are contacted. We appreciate your patience during this time.
