Inspection Process for Native Plants
After the native plant permit has been issued and prior to the commencement of salvage operations, the applicant shall notify the City Inspector at (480)312-5750 for a pre-inspection. For single family and commercial construction, the applicant is required to request a #42 Pre-Site Inspection by calling the City of Scottsdale voice response system at (480)312-5796.
At the time of inspection, the applicant shall present a copy of the approved, stamped and signed native plant program to the inspector. In the event that proof of permit can not be presented upon request by an authorized city representative all operations may be shut down.
After plants have been relocated to the native plant nursery, the salvage contractor shall contact the inspector for a post-inspection of the nursery site and those plants that have been salvaged and those that have survived salvage operations.
At the time of the post-inspection, the salvage contractor shall present the inspector with a listing of those plant inventory numbers which have not survived salvage operations along with a completed Native Plant Tracking Form (pdf/42kb/1p).
Each plant in the nursery shall have the inventory number and date it was side-boxed clearly visible on the box for inspection.
If plant loss has been greater than twenty percent (20%) the salvage contractor shall present the inspector with the reasons for said losses in writing.
Prior to tapping into any city water system for nursery irrigation the contractor shall contact the City’s Backflow Technician at (480)312-5650.
For any questions contact Inspection Services at (480)312-5750.
