The City of Dallas is expecting an unusually high volume of building
permit and electrical permit requests as a
result of the October 20th tornado. As electrical service is restored, there may be a need for additional

unprecedented level of requests, but it may impact the time it takes to respond
to inspection requests throughout the city as resources are reallocated. We ask
for your understanding and patience as service is restored to the households
impacted by the storm and the City prioritizes
building permit requests in the areas where citizens have been displaced by the
