Your facility will need to be inspected only if there is a "change of use" for the building.
For example, if a building was previously used as a retail shop and now it is a restaurant, the building needs to pass inspection by the Fire Marshal and Building Official to ensure the building meets the current building codes and city ordinance(s) and is safe for its new use. If a new tenant comes into the building and the use is the same or similar, no inspections need to be conducted. A certificate of occupancy will be issued to the new tenant.
The final inspection is conducted after the building and site is finished and ready for occupancy.
A Certificate of Occupancy is a document issued by the City of Marble Falls certifying a building's compliance with applicable building codes and city ordinances, and indicating it to be in a condition suitable for occupancy.
