The contractor or owner must call the Building Department to schedule the inspection.
If the fence is installed by the homeowners, they are responsible for installing the landscaping before calling for the zoning inspection on the fence. We will inspect the landscaping and fence at the same time. All required landscaping will be marked on the plans when reviewed by zoning.
When a fence contractor installs the fence, two permit numbers are issued. The first one is for the fence and the second one for the landscaping. The contractor will schedule the zoning inspection and then when the homeowner is done installing the shrubs, the owner must call to schedule the landscape inspection. The permit will be closed only when all inspections are successfully completed.
Failure to successfully complete the inspection process by closing out all permits (fence and landscape) may result in an expired permit status once the validity of the issued permits expires.
