Building Services

The Building Services Department is responsible for providing plan review and inspection services for all building and mechanical permits inside City limits.

To learn if you need a building permit go to:  Do I need a Building Permit?

If you are considering building within the Brookings city limits you should first research the area zoning on the Interactive Zoning Map.  The Brookings Municipal Code - Land Development Code Title 17 will provide information on the specific development possibilities/requirements.   

To find out more about building fees and obtaining building permits go to Building Development Fee Information and the Plan Review Checklist.

To start the building permit process fill out the Building Permit Clearance Form and submit with the required plans and fees to the Building Services Department.

Mechanical Permits

Mechanical permits are required when installing or replacing residential and commercial heating and cooling equipment, including gas stoves/lines, wood stoves, heating inserts, HVAC, and/or mini-split systems.  For mechanical permits contractors are able to submit permit applications and pay permit fees online through Oregon ePermitting.    


Building Inspections are scheduled Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.  To schedule an inspection contact the Building Official 24 hours in advance.
