Building Inspection Services

In an effort to continue to provide city services and reduce the spread of COVID-19, as of March 18, 2020, the Government Center will be open to limited access only. One point of access will be provided through the main front doors where a phone can be used to contact a staff member to assist you. Staff continues to be available via phone and email and many of our services are available online. Please consider using phone, email and online resources before visiting the Government Center.

In order to reduce exposure for customers and staff, all permit applications must be applied for electronically. You are encouraged to use our online services rather than visiting the Maple Grove City Hall. Visit to schedule your inspections and to apply for permits and submit plans. Thank you for your understanding.
