Our goal is to provide clear, consistent, reliable, and timely information and processes to developers, contractors, residents, and businesses to meet their needs regarding development, building, and codes for Hermantown.

Hermantown’s Building Inspection Department ensures that all construction meets the minimum standards of the Minnesota State Building Code. The Building Inspection Department is responsible for reviewing building plans, permitting, and inspecting all new construction.
