Building Inspections

The mission of the Building Inspections is to ensure the safety and welfare of the general public by enforcing structural, building, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical code regulations within the Town of Copper Canyon. Enforcement is achieved through plan review prior to the issuance of a permit and on-site inspections after permit issuance to verify compliance throughout the construction process.

It is essential that you contact us before you begin construction to find out if you need a permit. Even if a permit is not needed, we will answer construction questions and may provide valuable advice.


After the permit is approved, the contractor must schedule the required inspections. To request an inspection, please email

All inspection requests must be made through the town office. Inspections MAY NOT be scheduled directly with the building inspector. Requests for inspections that are requested before 12pm will be scheduled for the same day if possible, or the next day if necessary. Inspection requests emailed after 12pm will be scheduled for the next day, or within 2 business days at most.

Inspections that do not meet the requirements will be issued a red tag and a re-inspection fee of $75 will be required. A green tag left at the construction site indicates approval.
