Welcome to the Community Development Department permit and planning case web portal

As we further adjust to the escalating response needed to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are requiring all on-site building inspections to follow the set of protocols. These essential and critical inspections include, but are not limited to, occupied residences without electricity, heat or water; inspections related to services necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation; critical operation of jobsites; and other essential services as determined by the building official on a limited basis.

The Summit County Building Department has limited staff available with school closures and health concerns due to this pandemic.  We will provide limited, essential and critical building inspections.  All general contractor will need to provide safety plans to our office, have implemented their safety plan, walked all inspections to verify completion to code and approved plans.  Leave a contact # for a call ahead the day of your inspections.  If you are unable to schedule an inspection, please try for another day.  We will not be able to complete all inspections that are needed, please be patient, we will get to you. 
These policies are effective 3/26/20, however, due to the changing COVID-19 environment these policies are subject to revision.

In emergency / special situations please call the building department
