The Permit Process is the instrument used to enforce the law, which generally includes permit processing, plan review and inspections.

Ensuring Compliance

The ultimate goal of Building and Safety is to ensure that constructions within the City comply with all applicable codes and thereby minimize the potential for construction hazards, unsafe constructions and harm to the environment – protecting Public health, safety and welfare.
