Inspections & Planning
The Inspections & Planning Department's mission statement is "we are here to help." Creating something new can be daunting, especially if you are unfamiliar with city, state and federal requirements. That is why the Inspections & Planning team is here. We will assist in navigating the processes associated with doing business, living in or developing land in the city while abiding by objectives identified in the Comprehensive Plan and adhering to established International Building and Fire, and National Electrical Codes, and City Ordinances in order to maintain the quality of life standards established by Elected Officials and the Citizens of the City of El Campo.
