The Building Department provides technical assistance, plan review services, plumbing, mechanical and building inspection services for code compliance. Electrical inspections are handled by the State of MN.
Attention Builders: As of November 29, 2021 the City of Lake Elmo will resume in-house plan reviews.
When submitting new construction plans you will need to submit:

Once approved with comments, this set is to be kept on-site and made available to inspectors during all inspections.
All other items for application submittals may be done digitally.
Please submit plans to firstname.lastname@example.org
