Building Inspection Updates:

The Building Inspection Division staff will only be accepting in person or virtual appointments for technical assistance or inspection services.  Service counters for walk in delivery, pickup, or payments will not be available.   Please use the methods listed below for the applicable service.  

 Please do not “pre pay” any plan review or permit fees.  You will be notified of any amount due when your submittal is processed.

Please allow 7-10 business days for permit applications to be approved.

 Field inspections will be evaluated as requests come in and conducted when it is determined it is both essential, and safe for both staff and our customers. Certain inspections may be completed via alternate means such as Zoom or pictures at the inspectors’ discretion.   Please see the current inspection protocol on the Division’s Inspection Request website

Property Maintenance Concerns


When you think of the Building Inspection and Code Enforcement Department you probably think permits, right? Issuing permits and performing inspections, while at the center of our department, is definitely not all we do. Our inspectors enforce the State of Wisconsin Building Code Statues and city ordinances. They are involved in projects such as:

  • Additions
  • All electrical changes
  • Decks
  • New construction
  • Pools
  • Remodeling
  • Replacements of HVAC equipment, water heaters and softeners

We are also the enforcement arm of many City of Sun Prairie Ordinances, including long grass and weeds, snow and ice removal, and health and safety concerns. We also issue sign permits, handle property addressing and verify Conditions of Approval for most commercial improvements.
