Building Safety

The Building Safety Department is committed, through a cooperative effort with our residents, to providing outstanding service by ensuring commercial buildings and residential homes constructed, altered or maintained in Mansfield meet the recognized standard for overall quality of life and building safety.

The Avolve Online Application and ProjectDox Electronic Plan Review Systems that were implemented in January 2020 have allowed us to continue to process your applications for building permits and conduct the required plan reviews electronically before, during and following the closure of our public buildings.  All submittals of applications, plans and payments associated with permits and registrations will continue to be "contactless" via our online submittal and electronic plans system. 

This online electronic process will also continue to help reduce the need for any unnecessary exposure through in-person contact, exchange of paper documents or means of payment.

Please feel free to contact us at 817-276-4220 or email with any questions.
