Building Services

The Building Services Department consists of 1) Building Inspection and 2) Zoning Administration.
Building and construction issues are addressed within the Building Services Department which is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of City and State codes relating to construction, remodeling, alteration, repair, and demolition of buildings and structures located with the City. The purpose of such codes is to provide minimum standards to safeguard public safety, property and welfare by regulating and controlling the many factors involved with development. To ensure that construction work complies with applicable codes, the City requires comprehensive plans for most types of projects and inspections are conducted at periodic stages of the work.

The Building Services Department is responsible for the issuance of all construction permits and related inspections and provides professional advice regarding planning, zoning and community development issues. Staff members meet with developers, architects, builders, and property owners to discuss potential new construction, as well as renovation of existing commercial buildings and residences. This includes reviewing all plans submitted regarding the development of all property located within the city, assisting with the application process for rezoning, site plans, subdivision plats, lot splits and temporary and permanent signage.

The Building Department is responsible for administering and maintaining the Zoning Ordinance, Zoning Code, Zoning map, and the Master Plan.

The Zoning Administrator acts as a liason to the Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals.
