If you are proposing to build or remodel a food type operation such as a restaurant, grocery, or mobile food truck, or if building a new transient accommodation (hotel), state and local laws require you to submit a set of plans to the Health Department for approval 30 days prior to construction. The building department in your jurisdiction may also require plans to be submitted. This is the owner’s responsibility, Public Health does not forward on plans to them. The plan review process presents a unique opportunity to discuss and prepare a proper foundation that will allow the food type operation or transient accommodation to be successful, remain in compliance over time, and protect public health. Plan review is intended to ensure physical facilities and proposed operational processes are properly designed and sanitary practices implanted to serve their intended purposes and to ensure code compliance.

Public Health works hand in hand with local building and other inspection authorities to ensure that all applicable codes are met. See the links below for the building departments’ websites.

(Brookville, Clayton, Huber Heights, Riverside, Trotwood and includes most townships such as Butler, Harrison, Miami, and Washington)
