Construction Services & Inspections

Building your home, your business, and our community - together.

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, a deep concern for employee and public health and the closure of schools across the state, we are announcing substantial changes to City of Duluth operations. The Construction Services & Inspections Division's offices will be closed starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

Although the physical office will be closed, staff will continue to be available to respond to inquiries, process permit applications, review plans, and conduct inspections when appropriate and needed.

Please call 218-730-5240 or email We are monitoring voicemail and email inquiries and aim to respond the same day or the next morning.

Thank you.
