The Department of Planning, Building and Code Enforcement (PBCE) is a customer-focused, goal-oriented organization responsible for all the activities centered on land use, building code compliance, and construction throughout the City. It serves over 30,000 customers each year in the permit center, and performs over 200,000 Building inspections per year.
