A new Certificate of Occupancy policy has been in effect since February 3, 2011. A Zoning Compliance review is still required for any change in Tenancy. This review may result in a Zoning Compliance Certificate instead of a new Certificate of Occupancy. For questions about the new policy, contact Ron Boose, Building Official at 520-837-4937 or David Rivera, Zoning Review Manager at 520-837-4957.

No (new or remodeled) building or structure shall be used or occupied, and no change in occupancy classification shall be made until the building official has issued a certificate of occupancy.
