Online Permitting Portal:  Development Services has partnered with Oracle to develop an online permitting system streamlining all aspects of the building permit and inspection process. On January 26th 2022, a phased roll out of permits began, starting with the residential HVAC (A/C- air conditioner) change-out, roof replacements, water heater change-out(excluding insta-hot), window and door replacement and fencing. Additional permit types will be added to the Oracle cloud-based system in phases. Prior to submitting a permit application in the portal, the contractor must be registered in the Online Permitting system by a Building Division staff.
