In order to ensure that the conditions of approval for your project are being met, City staff will be routinely inspecting your project site.
For grading, excavating, and public right of way projects, staff will want to check to see you are meeting construction mitigation, stormwater, and basic safety standards.
Other formal inspections will be required for your project, which you will need to schedule. Inspectors do their best to respond to your inspection request quickly, but they have several to do each and every day.
Inspectors will also be examining your project site to ensure you are meeting code requirements. Not meeting any City or international requirements will require the inspector to address the issue with you.
Sometimes this can be worked out and the site can pass inspection with conditions. Other times, you will be required to correct issues before moving forward with your project.
