Building Inspections

Call Ahead Preferred

It is preferred that you call and talk to staff first before stopping in person to City Hall. Many questions can be answered through a phone call, email, or by visiting the City’s website. For business that needs to be conducted in-person and is more involved in nature, or needs more discussion, please call ahead and set up an appointment with the appropriate staff person.  

Popular Residential Projects

Information is available online for popular projects such as porches, decks, driveways, fences, sheds/garages, pools, and locating property lines. Please plan ahead and allow 7-10 business days for Planning/Zoning approval of Exterior Permit Applications.

Roofing and siding handouts are also available.

Radon                                                                                                                                    Effective Monday, August 10, 2020, the City of Coon Rapids no longer accepts, processes, issues or inspects new permit submittals for Radon mitigation systems. Due to the resolution of recent legal challenges to State of Minnesota Department of Health requirements, Radon mitigation permits must now be requested from the State of Minnesota Health Department.  

For all new residential construction and for additions to residential construction where a Radon mitigation system is currently installed, these Radon systems will continue to be reviewed and inspected as part of the overall building permit issued for the project - no additional mechanical permit is required.

Visit the Minnesota Department of Health websites for more information on Radon in Homes, Radon Laws, Rules and Standards and Licensing for Radon Professionals.
