Construction permits accepted electronically

Mar 31, 2020

In response to COVID-19, effective Monday, March 30 the District is no longer accepting paper applications or paper documents for construction and trades permits. We are still open for business and here to accept new applications and documents for existing applications electronically. 

Here's how we can help process your applications online.

Building & Trades Permits

Applicants must submit all necessary documentation, similar to in-person permit application submissions. All fees may be paid online.

We ask that you correctly name your documents prior to sending them by email. This way our staff can more easily review your documents and assist you.
