The Site and Subdivision Inspection Division perform inspections of site work for commercial development in the right-of-way before building construction begins. The inspectors ensure the proposed public infrastructure, including water and wastewater service, streets, sidewalks, driveways, storm sewer, curb inlets, water quality ponds, ADA ramps, etc. are in compliance with the Land Development Code and the City's Standard Specifications Manual and Standards Manual.

Once the work and infrastructure are complete, and the work passes inspection, an acceptance letter is issued to the property owner. Once an acceptance letter is issued, vertical construction may begin. The completed infrastructure becomes assets of the City to be maintained by the City.

Once construction is completed, a Certificate of Compliance is issued to the property owner and the site development permit is considered closed.
