Electronic Permit Submittal
How to apply for an e-permit
After several months of development and testing, the Community Planning and Building Department is now offering a paperless electronic permitting process for building permit applications. Through the e-permitting program applicants can now submit their complete building permit application, including forms, plans, calculations, specifications and other construction documents electronically through a portal on the City website. E-permitting allows the applicant to save on duplication costs, transmittal time, and allows for a more detailed review.
In order to fully complete and process the permit the application link must be followed and completed along with the additional steps provided below.

Permit Issuance Process
After the project is deemed complete and is ready to issue, the applicant must print three (3) physical copies of the full plan set and two (2) copies of the supporting calculations and documents. These sets must be stamped and signed by the appropriate designers, architects, or engineers who have worked on this project. Printing the sets at the end of the e-permitting process saves on duplication costs and will provide the city with a record copy and job site copy.
