New Requirements for Residential Building Permits


The City of Springfield Codes Administrator requests construction documents be summitted to the Community Development & Planning Department for all residential Building Permit Applications before a building permit is approved.

These construction documents will vary in complexity from project to project. The intent of this requirement is to better document what and how a structure is being constructed, location of rooms, length of spans of structural members, etc.

No fee required for this building plan review.

A certified Building Inspector is authorized to conduct and approve this building plan review.

If you have any questions, please contact Mark Fields, Codes Inspector, at 615-380-8618.
