Building, Plumbing & Mechanical Permits & Inspections

The Excelsior Building Inspection Department reviews plans, issues permits, and conducts inspections under the requirements and guidelines of the State Building Code. The purpose of the department is to ensure that public safety and health standards related to building construction are maintained for the general welfare of the community. This provides for a safer community for all citizens through proper construction methods and also provides for enhanced neighborhood livability and property values.
