------ Remote Inspection by Video Program in Response to COVID-19 ------
In Accordance with Centers for Disease Control Guidelines
As part of Collier County’s ongoing effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, Growth Management Department (GMD) Development Services is launching a program to conduct “remote” building inspections. Many building inspections currently require our staff to enter homes to view completed installation work. The Remote Inspection by Video Program allows the contractor to record a video at the completion of their work, then submit it to our licensed building inspectors for code compliance review. While we are not able to offer this service for all types of inspections, our first concern is to reduce residents’ exposure by limiting the need for inspectors to enter their homes. The Building Plan Review & Inspections Division has chosen to focus on Air Conditioning Change-outs, Water Heater Change-outs and Door & Window Replacements first. Once the program is up and running, we will evaluate adding additional inspection types.
Contractors who are interested in participating in the program will be able to register by 4/8/2020, to receive training on the requirements for the video recording and the process for uploading for review. Scheduling and inspection results will be provided through our normal CityView Portal operations.
Further information and registration materials will be released Monday, April 6, 2020.

We are dedicated to ensuring the building requirements of the State of Florida and Collier County are fully met by providing information and guidance throughout the permitting process. Each plans reviewer and inspector is expected to provide professional, consistent, and friendly service while working to foster an environment that understands the needs of our citizens, and works for full compliance of the governing codes.
The requirement to complete building permit application reviews within pre-established time frames before returning 50% of the building permit application review fee, as described in Building Block “A-126 Building Review Performance Standard”, is suspended until further notice. This action is effective as of September 6, 2017, at 12:00 noon.
The Growth Management Division’s Department received its first National Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award for Building Permit Review Standards: Managing Expectations. The NACo Achievement Awards are for counties with innovative programs that modernize county government and increase services to county residents. The Building Permit Review Standards program was an aggressive initiative to truly cement Naples as a destination location for developers looking to help stabilize the economy.
