Building Inspections

When you pick up your plans at the Permit and Information Center, your permits will be printed for you and attached to your approved set of plans. The permits will list all required inspections for your project listed in the typical order of construction.

Requesting an Inspection

Homeowners and contractors can schedule inspections for their construction projects online. Online scheduling shows all outstanding inspections for a project and allows multiple inspections to be scheduled at one time. If an inspection cannot be scheduled the system explains the reason why.

Keep in mind the following when requesting inspections:

  • Schedule before 7 a.m. to request an inspection for that day.
  • You will receive a confirmation email when your inspection has been scheduled.
  • Make sure to leave a phone number where we can reach you in case we need to contact you about the inspection.

The IVR system is no longer available for scheduling inspections. If you do not have access to a computer or smart phone, inspections can be scheduled by contacting inspection support staff at 541-682-5283.

Inspection Assignment

Inspections are assigned based on geographic area and availability of inspectors. We do not make appointments for inspections. If you need to meet the inspector on site, it is possible to leave a voice mail message for the inspector to have them call you 20 minutes before the inspection. The inspectors are available by cell phone from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Their phone numbers can be found on our Staff Contacts page.
