WHAT WE DO
We oversee all local building to make sure buildings and structures are safe, accessible, energy efficient, and built according to all state and local building codes. We coordinate building projects with other city departments, oversee inspections, and issue all building permits.
The Building Division also investigates complaints about unpermitted construction and substandard housing through the Code Enforcement Officer and Field Inspectors.
