Building Inspections
Code Enforcement

A Municipal Inspection is required for all home sales and rentals.

The Building Inspector inspects all new structures to enforce City Codes pertaining to buildings and property.  Inspections provide public welfare and safety to help maintain property values.

Code Enforcement will check properties to avoid nuisances and will respond to isolated concerns in order to ensure Municipal Codes and Ordinances are being followed.

The City of Dardenne Prairie is currently using 2015 International Residential Code; 2015 International Building Code; and 2014 National Electric Code.

A Letter of Approval From your HOA must accompany all exterior building permit applications.
