Temporary Certificate of Occupancy

A Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) may be available for certain projects.   The TCO requires ALL of the same inspections as a Certificate of Occupancy as well as additional fees and submittals.   For this reason do not view the TCO as a short cut to occupying the structure.

In order to begin a Temporary  Certificate of Occupancy, a TCO Request Letter and the TCO Fee must be submitted.

Please review the TCO Request Requirements document for what is needed to request a TCO.

TCO Fee

The Temporary Certificate of Occupancy fee of $396.00 (per permit/address) is due at the time of the Temporary Certificate of Occupancy request.   The fee includes the required initial inspection and one (1) reinspection prior to the issuance of the certificate.
