Civil & Site Inspections

Civil inspections include both off-site and on-site work.

  • Off-site work - in the public right-of-way such as paving , sidewalk, water, sewer, other utilities, concrete, driveways, fire lines, fire hydrants, storm drains, etc.
  • On-site work includes grading & drainage, storm drains, flood protection, erosion, retention, concrete/paving, drywells, and storm water.

Likewise site inspections include both on-site and off-site work.

  • On-site work for zoning requirements like the amount of parking, landscaping, or shade required, building position, height and colors, view screening, ADA accessibility, etc.
  • Commercial projects include off-site and on-site permits.
  • Residential projects only have civil permits for off-site. See Residential Inspections for on-site work.

Most civil and site work requires an approved plan before a permit can be issued. See Civil Plan Review or Site Plan Review for additional information.

Some permits may be obtained without a plan, such as:

  • Driveways
  • Sewer services
  • Water services or relocations
