Pre-application Meetings and Courtesy Completeness Checks

Building plan review staff are generally available to meet with walk-in customers in the Eagle office weekdays between 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. If you think you may arrive mid-day over lunch hour or plan to travel a long distance, we encourage customers to pre-schedule an appointment with the "Builder On Duty."  This will help avoid a longer wait while other meetings are in progress or the plans examiner is otherwise assigned to support on busy field inspection days. See the Building Department's contact information page for phone and email contacts. Feel free to email our plans examiner staff with your meeting appointment request.

Our Building Department offices remain open to the public until 5 p.m.  If you arrive after the plan and inspection team have left for the day, our administrative staff are still available to process permit applications and receipts. Those requesting a building application completeness check at our front desk are encouraged to arrive no later than 3:30 p.m. on weekdays.
