CONSTRUCTION INSPECTIONS

All phases of construction must be inspected by the Town of DeWitt, a Town authorized agency for electrical work, and Onondaga County for plumbing work, at such times as will allow observation of building components or systems. Consequently, it is CRUCIAL that you CALL the Planning & Zoning office for construction inspections AT LEAST 24 HOURS in ADVANCE.

 

NOTE: Contact the electrical and plumbing inspection agencies directly to apply and obtain inspections. 

Town Approved Electricial Inspection Agencies Plumbing Control, Onondaga County (315) 435-6614

 

Inspections proceed with a foundation inspection once a DEVELOPMENT PERMIT has been issued. A FOUNDATION SURVEY is then obtained and, if conforming to plans, then full DEVELOPMENT PERMISSION is given. Inspections will be conducted under New York State Building Codes and other applicable rules.

 

Up to seven inspections may be required based on the extent of construction work, including:

            1. footer preparation
           
2. foundation walls
           
3. rough framing and mechanicals
           
4. HVAC
           
5. insulation
           
6. fire safety systems
           
7. final Certificate of Occupancy inspection

 

A Development Permit must be DISPLAYED on the job site.
