Juneau: Need to request a building inspection? Starting Jan. 2021, the process is changing
AkGlobe News/10094180

Starting January 2021, building inspections through the City and Borough of Juneau must be requested no later than 12 p.m. on the business day before the requested date of inspection. That means, if you would like to schedule an inspection for Monday, you will need to make your request no later than noon on Friday. If you would like to schedule an inspection for the day following a holiday, you will need to make your request no later than 12 noon on the last business day prior to the holiday. To assist in easing this transition, the Community Development Department will extend a two-week grace period for inspections called in after 12 noon the business day before the requested date of inspection.

Morning foundation inspections hours will now be available as early as 8 a.m. and will continue throughout the day. All other inspections will remain scheduled between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Why the change?

Changing CDD's inspection request procedure allows adequate time to contact customers when inspection times need to be adjusted, often due to multiple requests for the same time slot, and to better accommodate complementary site visits. This change also allows inspectors time to research larger projects before arriving onsite, to provide better service and avoid rescheduling.
