Inspection Scheduling Process

After the permit has been issued and you have begun work, you or your contractor must request inspections at certain times.  To request inspections, call the 24-Hour Inspection Hotline at (970) 400-3015 inside the Greeley Area or (800) 234-2534 outside the Greeley calling area.  The Inspection Hotline operates 24 hours a day and inspections requested before 3:00 pm on any BUSINESS day (Monday through Friday, except scheduled holiday) will be performed on the next BUSINESS day.  If an inspection is scheduled but you are not ready for the inspection, please call the Inspection Hotline to cancel the inspection by 8:30 am on the day of the inspection.  You may be subject to reinspection fees if you are not ready for the requested inspection. The required inspections are marked on the forms you receive along with the building permit.  Please see the important information required for inspections.

Effective February 1, 2016, the Building Inspection Department is changing the inspection scheduling process.  Prior to scheduling rough inspections, the following inspections must be approved:  setbacks, footing/caissons, foundation, concrete encased electrode, perimeter drains and damp proof (if required/applicable). If an engineered letter is required, we will need that letter before rough inspections can be scheduled.  Prior to scheduling final inspections, rough inspections must be approved, as well as all other required scheduled inspections. Final Approval and Certificate of Occupancy require all conditions of approval on the permit to be completed as well.

Call 811 Before You Dig

Knowing where underground utility lines are buried before each digging project begins helps to prevent injury, expense and penalties. The depth of utility lines may vary and multiple utility lines may exist in one area. Simple digging jobs can damage utility lines and can disrupt vital services to an entire neighborhood, harm those who dig and result in expensive fines and repair costs. Marked lines show those who dig the approximate location of underground lines and help prevent undesired consequences.

One easy phone call to 811 quickly begins the process of getting underground utility lines marked.  811 personnel will then notify affected utility companies, who will send crews to mark underground lines for free. For simple home improvement projects and even on private property calling 811 will save you time and hassle.
