September 22, 2017 - Daily Update

Good Morning. Building Safety & Permits has 94 inspections and 19 left over for Friday, Sept. 22, 2017. Chad Adamson and David Malarkey are out of the office today. We may have inspections left over today but will make concrete related inspections and occupied homes a priority.

Building Safety & Permits is currently accepting applications for 2 Temporary, Part-Time Inspector positions.

Effective July 1 - information contained in engineering and construction drawings and plans for any single-family residential dwelling submitted for the purpose of complying with the Uniform Statewide Building Code (§ 36-97 et seq.) or the Statewide Fire Prevention Code (§ 27-94 et seq.) shall be confidential and shall not be subject to disclosure under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act (§ 2.2-3700 et seq.), except to the applicant or the owner of the property upon the applicant's or owner's request.

As a reminder, ALL dwelling unit deck footings must be inspected and may be requested separately or at time of house footings if ready.

The front office staff will only accept inspection requests for property owners who have not received a PIN to access the system.

All single-family dwellings require lot stabilization and grading in accordance with the approved site plan and Permit Agreement in Lieu of an Erosion and Sediment Control. Environmental Resource Protection Inspectors will inspect the lots for these requirements when requested and will automatically be scheduled at the time of Building Final inspection if not previously requested.
