Our Building Safety program helps keep our homes, schools, offices, stores and other buildings safe for public use. We review and inspect all construction projects that require building permits in the unincorporated areas of Clark County and the town of Yacolt. These projects range from small-scale residential remodels to large, multi-story commercial buildings and apartments.
Building permits are beneficial to you and your community. By obtaining the required permits you are not only protecting the financial investment in your project, you are also guarding against potential hazards of unsafe construction.
