The Permit Center is open for business!
An appointment is not necessary to meet with staff at the counter; walk ins are welcome. However, due to high demand, customers seeking detailed technical assistance or information are asked to make an appointment to reduce possible wait time. Customers can also connect with staff via phone or email, and virtual meetings using zoom remain an option.
Please use the city’s enhanced ONLINE PERMIT PORTAL to submit a permit application. Applications submitted through the portal may be processed more quickly.
Permit fees can be paid via credit card through the online permit portal or by calling the Permit Center. A 2.5% convenience fee will be charged for credit card/online payments. The convenience fee is not charged for check or cash payments made directly to the Permit Center. Please contact the Permit Center for assistance or technical support.
For general permitting or building questions, or for assistance with the online permit portal, call the Permit Center or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For planning or zoning questions, call the Permit Center or email email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: City staff continue to follow the state guidelines for masks and social distancing.
