Building Inspections

The City of Lake Forest is conducting in-person inspections for construction projects.  Inspections should be scheduled online.  If you need assistance in using the online system, please contact Kim Kraus or Jessica Linders.

In light of the current public health concerns, the following requirements must be followed:

  • Jobsites shall be free from non essential personnel. Only one representative should be present for the inspection.
  • Face coverings must be worn by all parties on the site.
  • A minimum separation distance must be maintained at all times.
If the inspector determines that the inspection cannot be conducted safely, following the above requirements, the inspection will be re-scheduled or a remote inspection through photos or video will be arranged.

Building inspections are required for any project that you obtain a permit for.  Inspections are an important part of the construction process as they are a step that ensures that the work is done properly and that minimum building standards are met for your safety, as well as that of future property owners and occupants of your home.
