Attention Home Owners!
All new homes built in Cibolo are now required to have foundation elevation measurements taken and submitted to the City by the builder. These measurements can be used as a baseline at a later date to assess suspected foundation movement and settling. You can request this information by submitting an Open Records Request.

Cibolo Ordinance no. 1410 - Foundation Inspections:
 Elevation measurements shall be used to determine and verify accurate foundation floor elevations. Elevation measurements shall be submitted to the City's Building Department as a post-pour inspection to be verified by City Staff. To achieve this, provide measurements of exterior foundation elevations at no less than the foundation corners, with “corners” being defined as all exterior offsets.

Responsibilities of the Building Department 

  • Issue required permits
  • Review building plans for compliance with Cibolo's adopted building and fire codes.
  • Process contractor registrations.
  • Perform required building and fire (new construction) inspections
  • Maintain department records
