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 break or plan to travel a long distance, we encourage customers to schedule an appointment in advance with a building plans examiner. This helps reduce your wait time while the plans examiner is meeting with other applicants or staff. See the Building Division's contact information page for phone and email contacts. Feel free to email a plans examiner with an appointment request.
