ePermit Plan Review


In a continuing effort to better serve the needs of residents and the business community, the Development Services Division is pleased to announce the ePermit Building Permit Service. ePermit Plan Review allows residents, contractors and tradesmen the ability to submit one of over twenty "short review" permits and forms electronically for review. "Short review" permits are considered small projects that can be reviewed expeditiously, do not require a design professional's seal and typically only require one or two disciplines to review.

Save time and multiple trips to City Hall, allowing you to start the project sooner by applying, managing, paying for and scheduling inspections for your permit application online.
