Building Inspections, Special Inspection Program, and Surface Mining Inspections.
Building projects are inspected by Department of Planning & Building staff during construction to ensure that the project complies with applicable codes and ordinances. The goal of the Department is to perform these inspections thoroughly while minimizing their impact to the project.
The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Planning and Building provides the local building industry with the Special Inspection Program. Use of the program is mandatory when any special inspection is required on a project. The program provides a complete overview of the requirements for owners, design professionals, special inspectors, contractors, the building official, and all staff involved.
The State Office of Mine and Reclamation (OMR) requires the County to conduct annual mine inspections for all active mines within the unincorporated areas of the county. These inspections include on-site visits to ensure that the mines are operating within their approved boundaries and following the requirements of their approved reclamation plans.
