The Planning and Development Services Department and the Building and Fire Prevention Division are working towards an electronic permitting system that will allow licensed contractors, engineers and others to apply for and obtain permits in a completely online format.  Electronic permitting can help to  save time for residents, businesses and developers, reduce paper costs and speed along the permitting process.  Until the electronic permitting system is ready for use, the information and applications for permits are located at the links below.
