Inspection Request Information

In accordance with Santa Clara County Public Health Order effective April 1, 2020, only construction work deemed essential by the Order can continue.  As a result, we will only be performing inspections for construction work deemed essential by the Order.  If you believe you meet one or more of the categories for continuing construction, please provide Robert Gray and Joel Paulson an e-mail detailing why you believe you comply with one of the eight essential types of construction.  We will review the requests on a case by case basis and make a determination on whether construction can continue.
