  • Final Zoning Inspection

    A final zoning inspection and approval may be required for a building project prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy or before the building inspector gives their final sign off on the project.  The purpose of a final zoning inspection is to verify compliance of zoning code requirements and discretionary conditions of approval for required projects.  The final zoning inspection requirements are pre-determined during plan check review and approval.

    A final zoning inspection and approval is standard for the following project types:

    1. commercial construction,
    2. residential construction within a hillside zone,
    3. residential and commercial construction with discretionary conditions of  approval, and
    4. multi-family residential construction.

    Before a final zoning inspection is scheduled, the inspection fee must be paid.  The current cost for a final zoning inspection may be found by consulting the Permit Center's Online Fee Schedule, and will include a 3% records management surcharge.  Multiple City staff may be required to verify complex land use requirements.

    ALL FINAL ZONING INSPECTION REQUESTS ARE SCHEDULED THROUGH THE CITY'S CODE COMPLIANCE OFFICE.
