Inspection Checklists

To help better prepare you for your inspection, the City had developed these helpful checklists.  While they do not cover every code requirement that may apply to your particular job, they are the most common areas for correction.

Inspection Requests

Inspections may be requested in the following ways:

  • in person during open counter hours
  • by email
  • by telephone (206-780-3789)

The following information should be included in the inspection request:

  • Permit number
  • Type of inspection requested
  • Site address
  • Owner's name

 Any incomplete information will delay your inspection request.

For a framing inspection, the electrical must be inspected and approved. For a final inspection, the electrical final, drainage, road approach, and Kitsap County Health Department Final must be approved. 

Calling for a Final Inspection
Final inspection requests are scheduled three working days from the date the request is received.  This time is to allow the City to verify that all conditions of issuance have been met.  If applicable, ensure that all electrical (State Labor and Industries) and health (Kitsap Public Health) final approvals have been granted prior to calling for your building final. 

Cancelling an Inspection
If you need to cancel an inspection,  please notify the department via the inspection line, email system or in person at the front counter before 9:00am on the date of the inspection.
