Inspection Scheduling for Eastern Nevada County

Effective October 2, 2017, the Nevada County Building Department is expanding service in Eastern Nevada County by offering inspections by appointment on Thursdays.  Please follow the procedures below for requesting an appointment:

  • All Truckee inspections are preformed on Mondays and Thursdays and must be scheduled online at least 2 days in advance. It is best practice to schedule inspections sooner that the cutoff date/time as the inspection schedule fills up during the busy building seasons.
  • Digital inspections (inspection must qualify) must be requested via email at BuildingDept@co.nevada.ca.us or by phone at (530) 265-1222 two (2) business days prior to the requested inspection date. Building staff will contact the requesting party within 24 hrs of the request to confirm the inspection date depending on project applicability, staff availability and inspection demands. The person onsite completing the digital building inspection with the Building Department staff member shall have mobile service at the project site and have Facetime or Skype installed on their mobile device(s).

 If Monday is a Federal holiday, inspections will be conducted on the next business day. Eastern Nevada County includes all areas of Unincorporated Nevada County East of Yuba Gap to the Nevada State line and the Bowman Lake area, Yuba Gap, Kingvale, Soda Springs, Truckee, and Floriston.
