Building Inspections
The City of DeSoto Building Inspection Division is here to assist the citizens of DeSoto with all their building projects. We want to assist in the pre-planning, obtaining permits, and the inspection process for their specific projects. Our mission is to not only assist in obtaining the permits but to assure that these projects will comply with the City's Building Codes. We want to ensure that all projects are long-lasting and done with maximum safety.

The Primary activities of Building Inspections are:

Plan Review
Permit issuance
Public consultation
On-site inspections to verify compliance with adopted codes.

Building Inspection also works closely with the Planning Division, Engineering Division, Public Utilities Division, and the Fire Marshal's office to enhance the City's overall ability to better serve the citizens of DeSoto.
