This website allows citizens to apply for permits and schedule inspections. It also allows citizens to track and search for permits.
You can save travel and waiting time by filing for permits online and checking your application’s status any time of day or night. You can also pay permit fees online, and download and print your own building permits and other documents.
If you need immediate action on a permit application, or if you have a complicated special event, it may still be better to come in-person for guidance.

You will be able to pay for your permit once its status is “Permit Approved”. In order to ensure that web users are being charged the correct fees, we do not require or allow payment before all reviews have been completed.

Once your application is approved you will be notified by email, and when you view your application on this site you will see a “Pay Fees” link on the same line as the “View”, “Print Summary”, and “Add to Watch List” links.

When you click on the “Pay Fees” link the fees will be added to your shopping cart, where you will be able to review them before submitting payment. You can pay for up to 10 fees at one time.

If your credit card’s billing address is different than the mailing address you used when you registered, please make sure to click the “Specify my billing address” button.

First, make sure to leave off city, state, zip code, and any apartment or suite number if your address has one. Only type in the house number and street name and hit Search. You’ll be able to enter an apartment/suite number on the next screen, and we don’t need the city, state, or zip code to locate the address.

If you’ve tried entering an address without an apartment/suite number, city, state, or zip code and still can’t find it, please call the Building Department for assistance in determining what the legal address is for the location you’re searching for.

The convenience fee for credit card payments is 2.99% of the total permit fees. This is added to all credit card payments to offset the costs that our financial institution charges us to process credit card transactions.

Once the application is approved and fees are paid, you can download your permit from the completed payment page. You can also find it again any time by finding the permit in Your Items and clicking the “Downloads” link beneath the permit header.
