Planners, engineers, inspectors, code compliance officers and support staff from the Development Services, Fire, Transportation and Utilities departments help homeowners, business owners and professionals in the construction industry navigate the permitting process; our work entails reviewing plans, inspecting projects and investigating code violations. This service ensures that projects are safe and aligned with federal, state and city codes.

    We're aiming for 100% paperless permitting in 2019!

    We offer 24/7 online permitting services at MyBuildingPermit.com. You can apply online, check permit status and request inspections. All building, fire, utilities, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sign, right of way, wireless and clearing & grading permit applications must be submitted online at MyBuildingPermit.com. Paper applications and plans for these permit types are no longer accepted. 

    We are on track with our goal of 100% paperless permitting! The final piece will fall into place on September 6, 2019, when all land use and shoreline permit applications must be submitted online. As of this date, we will no longer accept paper applications or plans for any permit type.
