Permit Tracking

Through our Citizen Access Portal, you can search for, and track, the progress of your permits. Simply click the Citizen Access Portal link below, and select the type of permit you would like research. Permits are divided into 3 sections: Building, Engineering, and Zoning.

Once you have chosen the appropriate section, enter your permit number in the field marked Record Number and click the search button. If you do not know your permit number, you have plenty of search fields to help narrow down your results, such as address information and record type.  

Click on the permit number of the search result to see the details of that permit, like the inspections and processing status.

You do not have to create an online account to use the permit search function.
