The City of Rockport’s Building & Development Department is here to help residents understand how to rebuild after the recent disaster. To determine your flood risk and rebuilding requirements, call (361) 790-1125 or click here for more information.
Due to the high volume of inspection requests, the Building Department is changing its deadline for inspections. You may schedule an inspection for the same day by calling the Building Inspection Department’s 24-hour Inspection Request Line, 361-790-1177, no later than 7:00 A.M. of the day you need the inspection. Any inspection requests received after 7:00 a.m. will be scheduled for the following business day.
As a result of the high volume of traffic we have been experiencing post-Harvey, we have been unable to process both emailed and faxed permits in a timely manner. Therefore, all permits must be applied for in person until further notice.
Please visit our office at 2751 Hwy 35 Bypass, located on the west access road between Pearl and Market Streets, to obtain permits.
