Certificate of Occupancy

Certificate of Occupancy inspections are done after the building has passed final inspection. Once the final has been passed that gives the occupants permission to move everything in and get it set up like it will be when they open for business. When that is done they will need to contact our office at (479)-621-1100 and set up a time for us to come out and do the inspection, please allow 24hrs notice. All new buildings will be required to have an inspection from the fire marshal and all restaurants will be required to have their Health Department inspection done prior to our inspection. In addition, notify the Planning Department that you are ready for a Certificate of Occupancy and they will conduct their own site inspection.

Once the building inspection is completed you will need to bring the paperwork to our office, located at 301 W. Chestnut, where you will pay a $25 inspection fee and we will print off the Certificate of Occupancy. The Planning Department will then verify that all the conditions of approval have been met including, but not limited to, a drainage certification by the engineer of record, a 3-year landscape guarantee and any other required paperwork. Once the Planning Department has signed the Certificate of Occupancy, you will need to take it downstairs to the main entrance where you will pay for your business license. Failure to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy shall be a misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $250.00 per day that said violation exists (Ord.No. 04-56). A new Certificate of Occupancy will have to be obtained when there is a change of ownership or when a business moves to a new location within the city limits.
