Building Inspection Office
The Inspection Office oversees all residential and commercial construction in Mt. Lebanon, both new construction and remodeling. We review plans for code compliance and issue building permits. The Inspection Office also inspects properties for compliance with regard to the building, grading, health and safety, minimum property standards, solid waste and zoning chapters of the Mt. Lebanon Code.
Zoning Hearing Board
The Inspection Office administers the volunteer Zoning Hearing and Codes Review Boards. Every municipality which has enacted a zoning ordinance is required to have a Zoning Hearing Board. The purpose of the zoning hearing board is to conduct hearings and render decisions regarding requests for variances to the zoning chapter.
