The City of Carver’s Building Inspections Department performs a review on plans that have been submitted, issues the permit, and conducts various inspections as needed throughout the construction process.  The Inspections Department, along with the building code, also regulates the City’s zoning ordinance for compliance.

Building permits should be submitted to City Hall at 801 Jonathan Carver Parkway or by mail to PO Box 147, Carver, MN 55315.  Along with the permit application, two sets of plans indicating the work that will be completed with the proposed project must be submitted for staff review.  Please contact our office if you are unsure if your project requires a permit.

City office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p. m., Monday through Friday.  Feel free to contact our office for any questions you may have.
