Certificate of Occupancy

There are multiple steps, outlined below, to obtain occupancy. A Certificate of Occupany is issued for all:

  • New Residential Construction
  • New Commercial Construction
  • Tenant Improvements or Change-Of-Use

The building permit and any related permits for the project must pass final inspection and all conditions of those permits must be met before the City of Missoula can issue a Certificate of Occupancy. If they cannot be met at this time, you may request the departments review and approve a Conditional (aka Temp) Certificate of Occupancy. 

If applicable, properties must pass their Missoula Public Health City-County Health Department final inspection.
