Building Inspection


Welcome to the City of Manitowoc Building Inspection department web page. Forms, handouts and resources can be found here and are intended to help simplify the plan review and permit issuance process for your project whether you are a property owner, contractor or design professional. For property maintenance concerns an on-line "Report a Concern" form has been created as an additional notification tool to alert code enforcement officers of possible property violations.

We invite you to explore this web page at your convenience to learn more about how the department can assist you with the development of your construction or renovation project in the City of Manitowoc or provide code enforcement assistance for property maintenance concerns in your neighborhood.
