Typically the Planning Department will conduct an inspection once the project is complete. Other inspections may be necessary from agencies such as the Allen County Building Department while the project is under construction. Commercial and industrial projects may also require inspections from other reviewing agencies such as the New Haven/Adams Township Fire Department or the New Haven Engineering Department.
