The Minnesota State Building Code and the City of Lake St. Croix Beach ordinances, which are both enforced by the City, provide minimum standards to safeguard life, property, and public well-being by regulating and inspecting the design, construction, and quality of materials used in building projects.


Inspections are required for all building, construction, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing work to insure the building activity meets the building and City Codes and adheres to approved plans.
