The City of Rockwall has implemented a "One Hour Notice" inspection policy for selected types of inspections, with the goal of saving our customers time and money and increasing first time inspection approvals.

“eTrakit” System
The City of Rockwall offers citizens and contractors access to the City’s tracking program for building permits, planning/engineering projects and code enforcement cases. Citizens can also search the City’s growing database of registered contractors. eTrakit Page

Construction Restrictions
The City Council has approved an amendment to the city’s noise ordinance that forbids construction work on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The amendment is intended to allow residents a timeout from construction noise on the designated holidays. It applies only to contractors and not to homeowners.
