The Building Safety Department is a division of Development Services. The objective of the Building Safety Division is to ensure the built environment protects the public’s health, safety, and general welfare. Building Safety does this by issuing proper permits for approved construction, ensuring construction plans comply with codes and by inspecting construction for compliance to the applicable State and local construction codes. City staff ensures that construction meets the currently adopted Arkansas Fire Prevention Code, Arkansas Plumbing and Gas Codes, Arkansas Mechanical Code, Arkansas Energy Code and the Arkansas National Electric Code. Please contact the city building department at 479.784.2206 for specific information that is applicable to your specific project.
The Building Safety Department also ensures that construction work is performed by properly licensed professionals and tradesmen on construction projects. The Buidling Department staff can assist with specific information and direction concerning the State and City requriemetns for licensing and registration.
