At this time, only projects in our "One-Stop" category can be applied for or issued online.

Essentially, any project we do NOT need plans to review would be online-eligible.

There are currently two places where we keep permit records online.
The first, which houses our more-recent permits is our online permit system. You can see active projects on the homepage map, and search by address (or permit number) via the search function.
The second place is our online repository for archived documents. Archived documents go back to the 1920's in some cases, and include many scanned permits, code enforcement, and other documents which can help with property research and permit history.
If you are expecting to find something that you don't see in either system - just reach out and let us know what you are looking for. We'll do our best to help! Email us your inquiry for the best response: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Generally we do not accept plans or submittals via email, except in cases where we are currently reviewing an ongoing project and specifically request a submittal be emailed to us.
