Will Valparaiso Building Department require permits and inspections during COVID-19 closures?

Although City Hall is currently closed to the public, the Building Department is otherwise operating normally. Inspections will be handled in the usual manner by calling 219-462-1161 and leaving inspection request voicemail. Permit applications can be submitted via email to vthrasher@valpo.us with plans and required documents attached or mailed to Valparaiso Building Department at 166 Lincolnway. Permit pick up will be by appointment with city’s Clerk-Treasurer’s office. The lerk-Treasurer’s office will be accepting appointments between the hours of 8:30 and noon only, Monday through Friday. Please call 219-462-1161 to schedule. Permits and inspections are still required.

The Building Department is doing everything we can to minimize the impact to construction activities.
