The City helps ensure the construction of safe building with building codes. Building codes help ensure that construction projects are built in accordance with nationally recognized standards. These standards are designed to protect buildings from collapse and fire for the safety of all building occupants.
Some permits, such as residential plumbing, mechanical, siding/roofing, and window replacements can be issued at the time of application. Other permit applications will need the plans to be reviewed prior to being issued. These applications should be submitted well in advance of the scheduled starting date. This will allow time for City staff to offer assistance throughout the process and issue permit at the start of the project. This is especially true during the summer construction season.
The commercial and residential construction value in Blaine over the last 5 years was approximately $1.3 billion. This includes around 1,600 new homes and townhome units. During this timeframe the building inspection department performed approximately 119,000 inspections.
