Code Enforcement & Building Inspections

Office Hours: Monday 8:00-1:00; Tuesday - Friday 8:00 - 3:00

Inspections & Appointments: Please call or email at least 48 hours before to schedule inspections or appointments

Building inspections required: It is up to the permit holder to call the CEO for inspections. The Code Enforcement Officer has no way of knowing how fast your project may move along.

Framing: Can be combined with electrical and/or plumbing rough-in inspection.

Electrical: Service inspection only.

Plumbing: Inspection done before closing in walls.

External Wastewater System Septic System: Two inspections are required.

  1. Prior to the installation of pipes or gravel into the bed so we can view the scarification.
  2. Prior to backfilling.

Final Inspection: Issuance of Occupancy Permit.

Building files are available to view by the public during office hours.

Permits are required for all, but not limited to, new buildings, structural alterations to existing buildings, work involving the installation, replacement or relocation of electrical wiring, work involving the installation, replacement or relocation of plumbing fixtures, the installation of new or replacement septic systems, new or replacement signs, new swimming pools and demolition of existing buildings and blasting.

The following activities shall not require a building permit: repairs, replacement and/or normal maintenance not requiring structural elements, decorative changes in existing structures or buildings. This means you are not rewiring, removing walls, or replacing plumbing. Structural changes within a building would require a building permit. If your building/property is located within the Floodplain/Floodway then repairs and replacement components must meet the Town of Naples Floodplain Management Ordinance.

All building permit applications are required to have building plans and information showing all appropriate construction details. The plans and information are required so that a review for code and zoning compliance can be made prior to and during construction. A checklist of these requirements is attached to the Building Permit application.

A final certificate of occupancy is required before new buildings and additions can be occupied. Inspections are very important to ensure compliance with building codes. The number and timing of inspection will vary depending on the size and scope of the project. The staff in the Codes Office can provide information on what inspections will be required for your individual building project.

Please contact the Codes Office before proceeding with building or remodeling plans. Permits allow the enforcement of codes, which have been adopted as law by Federal, State, and Town. No matter what the specific project may be, the enforcement of codes is carried out to protect the public health, safety, and welfare. The Code Enforcement Office which enforces the codes is acting to assure safe construction.
