NOTICE: Please note that Development Services Department is currently closed to the public for any face-to-face interactions.

We are still open for business and the following procedure has been implemented to ensure continuous services:

Inspections will only be conducted with pictures and/or video.  The DSD Inspectors will be reaching out to all contractors with scheduled inspections to inform them of the new procedures and to get an understanding of what electronic media works best for engagement. At time of inspections, someone will need to be on-site to either send pictures or video chat as requested by the inspector. Please note that at this time inspections can take up to 4 business days.


There are several methods of scheduling an inspection:

1. To schedule inspections, you can login to the Dynamic Portal at to schedule inspections and see inspection results. If you do not have a Dynamic Portal account, please contact Development Services at (361) 826-3240 for assistance.

2. You may contact our office at (361) 826-3240.
We will be happy to assist you. Any available permit clerk will assist you in scheduling an inspection. Because there may be an extended wait time due to heavy walk in traffic, please use this option only when other options are not available. All inspections are scheduled for the next business day.


IMPORTANT NOTE:  If fees are outstanding, they must be paid before any inspections will be scheduled. This includes any tap fees or administrative penalties assessed for work without a permit.
