Building Regulation


The Greene County Department of Building Regulation offices are currently closed to the public, for the health and safety of our staff and community.  However, we are currently conducting limited operations.

A drop box has been installed in front of our offices at 667 Dayton-Xenia Road, Xenia, Ohio.  Plans, permit applications, plan review responses and plan revisions may be dropped off Monday thru Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  The box will be emptied at the end of each business day.

Beginning March 23, 2020, we will have a Permit Technician available to answer the office phone at (937) 562-7420, return voice mail messages and respond to emails.  Emails can be received at

Inspections may be requested via office phone, voice mail or email.

Virtual inspections shall be conducted using the Face Time App through Apple products, i.e. I-Phone or I-Pad or with Android products by downloading the  Google Duo App.

The inspectors have the right to cancel or reschedule the inspection request if not appropriate.

Inspection results will be provided via email, similar to normal operations.  The inspectors will call the contractors after 8:00 a.m. to schedule an inspection time.

Mission Critical Projects:  Inspections such as hospitals, nursing homes, medical offices, grocery stores, cell towers, schools, emergency gas and electrical services, supply stores, damage assessments, etc. shall be given priority.

Please be patient for responses since we have limited staff at this time.
