3/23/2020 UPDATE: Lancaster County Building department will continue to keep our permitting and inspections moving, as we all do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We have added a drop box located at the side parking lot of the Admin building for drop off of plans and needed materials. Inspections will continue, some may require site visits and others may be done by video, pictures and/or video call. For inspections that require county staff to perform onsite please remember to adhere to the 6’ distancing required by the State Governor. If you have any questions please call our office.

ALL INSPECTIONS STILL NEED TO BE CALLED INTO THE AUTOMATED LINE AS NORMAL. PLEASE MAKE SURE A CONTACT NUMBER IS INCLUDED WITH YOUR REQUESTED INSPECTION.
