  • Construction
  • Design
  • Location and Maintenance
  • Quality of Materials
  • Use and Occupancy

The provisions of the code apply to the following aspects of any building or structure within the City:
  • Alteration
  • Construction
  • Demolition
  • Maintenance and Use
  • Moving
  • Repair

Call to Contact Us

We encourage you to call us at 952-826-0372 with any questions about construction projects being considered or already in progress. 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.
