Certificate of Occupancy (C/O) or Compliance (C/C) recognizes that permitted building construction is in substantial compliance with approved plans and building and zoning codes.
A C/O is required for all new construction, alterations, repairs or conversions of structures for human occupancy. It is issued once the construction is complete and all supporting documents are presented to Planning & Zoning.
An Affidavit for C/O shall be filed by an owner, designer or contractor and a final inspection will be conducted. If all work including cleanup and groundcover is completed, a C/O may be issued.
Certificate of Compliance (C/C) recognizes compliance with applicable codes pertaining to structures and other improvements to property as well as buildings for other than human occupancy. Such improvements include but are not limited to swimming pools, fences, additions, alterations, conversions, sheds, garages or fireplaces – to name a few. An Affidavit for C/O shall be filed by an owner, designer or contractor and a final inspection will be conducted.
On occasion, it may be necessary to issue a TEMPORARY C/O that signifies the structure is substantially complete and safe for occupancy. Deadlines for the completion of outstanding work will be specified in cooperation with the owner and contractor.
