Basement Finish Valuations Update Coming February 2022

Effective upon the release date of the February 2022 International Code Council (ICC) Building Valuation Data Table (BVDT), adopted by ordinance in the City of Greeley, residential basement finish valuations will be starting to adjust towards current ICC BVDT valuations.

The current residential basement valuation is $25.65 per square foot.

Starting in February 2022, we will incrementally adjust the residential basement valuations with the goal of attaining 20% of the BVDT for R-3 construction by August 2023, the same factor we have been using since 2006 for all other types of basement/tenant, remodel finish construction.

Construction Inspections

Request an Inspection

Required inspections are performed at various stages of the construction process as outlined in the International Codes.

A list of the required inspections is also included in your permit. But, as a general rule, an inspection is required prior to covering up any work regulated by the codes.

To request an inspection, use eTRAKiT.

Inspections are typically conducted between 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. We cannot schedule, or guarantee, a specific time for an inspection. However, we will try our best to make arrangements to inspect a project when access is provided.

All inspection requests must be scheduled through the eTRAKiT portal.

Inspections scheduled and received by 6:00 a.m. on the same business day may be scheduled and completed on that day.  Inspections cannot be scheduled or completed on holidays.

Property Maintenance Code

The City's Property Maintenance Code constitutes minimum requirements and standards to protect life, health, property, and public welfare by regulating the use, occupancy, location, and maintenance of all residential and nonresidential buildings. When issues are reported, we will investigate complaints and observations of possible property maintenance code violations and determine if there is a violation of the Code
