Dear Rockford Area Builders:
The purpose of this letter is to outline the steps that are required to obtain all necessary approvals for construction of single family homes within the City of Rockford. The city operates under a team approach with its contract building officials, Professional Code Inspection (PCI). PCI is responsible for handling all required building permits including structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. The City handles all necessary zoning and soil erosion and sedimentation control permits.
During the construction of individual homes within the City, City staff and PCI will make periodic inspections of the site. It is very important that all soil erosion and sedimentation control measures included within the permit are maintained at all times. Failure to do so will result in the City requiring a performance or surety bond as allowed by ordinance. No bond will be required for those builders who strive to comply with City ordinances and maintain proper soil erosion and sedimentation control measures.
Any questions regarding this process can be directed to Mr. Kirk Scharphorn.
CITY OF ROCKFORD
