Building & Housing

The Building & Housing Department is the gateway for all construction activity and property maintenance inspections in the City of Shaker Heights.  The department has both Residential and Commercial Building certifications as recognized by the Ohio Board of Building Standards.

Our mission is to partner with property owners to ensure the City’s homes and buildings are constructed and maintained in a way that protects the health and safety of the building’s occupant’s while guarding against blight.
