Building & Housing Department

The Building & Housing Department was created in December 2017 as a result of a merger between the Building and Housing Inspection Departments. We are working to create a combined presence for the new department on this website, but in the meantime please use the information and links below to find what you're looking for. If you're not sure where to start, please call the Building & Housing Department at 216-491-1460.
