State law requires the PVA to physically inspect every property in the county every four years. To accomplish this requirement a quadrennial plan, aka “quad plan”, is created.
Inspections are accomplished in one of two ways:
- Aerially – We typically review the property on our aerials first to determine if the property has changed significantly since the last inspection. If there are characteristics we can’t determine on the aerial we’ll send an inspector to visit the property in-person.
- In-person – One of our inspectors will visit the property driving one of our office vehicles that are clearly marked as a state vehicle from the PVA office. Our inspectors will identify themselves before inspecting your property.
In 2018-2019 we completed a thorough inspection of farm properties. McCracken County has approximately 1,946 farms. After farms are complete we will continue residential & commercial property inspections. The plan will be posted here when specifics are available.
- Outside fire district (in progress)
- Melber fire district (completed)
In addition to quad inspections, we routinely inspect properties in which a permit has been issued and respond to property owner inquiries.
