Building Inspections

David Fisher Chief Building Official



NEW: All permits and plan reviews will be done electronically starting June 1, 2017. Please click on the 'Apply Online' button and then click 'Apply for Permit'.

Our staff consists of the Building Official, ten inspectors and three support staff. All our staff have multiple years of experience in the construction industry and code enforcement.

The Edina City Code adopts the Minnesota State Building Code, which in turn adopts the International Building Code, International Residential Code and other codes and standards relating to building construction.

The purpose of the code is to provide minimum standards to safeguard life or limb, health, property and public welfare by regulating and controlling the design, construction, quality of materials, use and occupancy, location and maintenance of all buildings and structures within the City.

The provisions of the code apply to the construction, alteration, moving, demolition, repair, maintenance and use of any building or structure within the City.

We encourage you to call with any questions about construction projects being considered or already in progress. Our general telephone number is 952-826-0372. Support staff will route calls to the appropriate individuals. Because inspection staff spends most time out of City Hall, it is more effective to call and set up appointments with inspectors before coming in.
