Building Inspections

Building-Inspections

The Building Inspections Division is responsible for the administration of the Minnesota State Building Code and related City Ordinances regulating construction, alterations and the use of buildings within the city. These minimum standards are enforced to protect the health, safety, welfare, and property of the citizens of Redwood Falls by ensuring that proper procedures and building codes are followed in the construction of structures throughout the city.

Building Permits are required for many building projects, including, not limited to, new construction, additions, structural changes, decks, finished basements, manufactured homes, moving structures, demolition, roofing, siding, and window replacement, etc. Permit fees are paid at the time the permit is issued. Residential building permits for re-siding, re-roofing, window replacements, minor plumbing and mechanical permits can generally be issued within 24 hours. Other residential permit applications, which require plan review, can take up to five working days to process. Commercial building permits can take up to two weeks for processing.

Applications for permits should be submitted well in advance of the scheduled construction start date. This will allow City staff time to offer assistance and issue permits by the start of the project.

If you are unsure if your project requires a permit, please contact the Inspections Department at (507)637-5755 or at inspections@ci.redwood-falls.mn.us
