Building Safety monitors compliance with the City of Denton’s building codes, ordinances and amendments. The division is responsible for issuing permits and licenses, reviewing plans and performing inspections on all aspects of the building process to verify compliance with building codes. These codes are designed specifically to ensure the safety of the structure.
To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Development Services Center (215 W. Hickory Street) is temporarily closed to the public. Until the situation changes, permit applications will only be accepted online. Health and Building Inspections will proceed as usual in the field. If you need additional information, please call (940) 349-8541 or (940) 349-8360.
