Building Permits & Inspections

The City of Vadnais Heights has adopted the Minnesota State Building Code. Minimum standards have been established to provide a level of safety and performance for all structures. Construction projects are inspected to help make sure that these minimum standards are being met. Most projects will require a permit through the City before starting construction, as well as a contractor license application.
