Inspection Schedule

Document Resubmittal Instructions

The online permit center will allow you to apply for permits, pay fees, request inspections, and view the status of Public Works and Community Development permits.   Applications for burn permits, vacation rental certifications, and stand-alone mechanical and plumbing (without any land disturbance) are available online.  All other permits are still submitted in paper form to Community Development. 

To purchase a Burn Permit or submit a Vacation Rental Certificate of Compliance, you must first sign up for an account. No access code is required. Once you have verified your account through a link sent to your e-mail (check junk mail) you must log off and log back in again. If you already have a permit in the system and don't have your access code, email with your permit number and/or project address to get your portal access code.

On-line inspection scheduling can be accessed by logging in to your account, clicking on "Applications", then "My Applications", then select the permit you wish to schedule for and scroll to the inspection section to select and request your inspection. The daily schedule will be posted by 9:00 am.  Scroll down to "Other services" and click on "Inspection Schedule"

Health & Community Services applications and fees are still submitted in person or via mail - directly to the Health Department. Links to application forms and submittal information for these departments is below:
