Not all projects require a certificate of occupancy to be issued. A certificate of occupancy is required for the following projects:
- New commercial and residential structures
- Tenant improvement of a newly occupied space
- Tenant improvement or remodel that involves a change in the occupancy type
- Other projects as determined
When required inspections are made on a project the inspector will indicate whether the inspection has passed or failed. When all required inspections have passed and the information is documented, a certificate of occupancy will be automatically generated if the project requires one. A green tag signifying compliance with certain code requirements will be given to projects that do not require a new certificate of occupancy.
