Residential permits start going online

As part of The City’s eServices initiative, we’re working to make it faster and easier to apply for residential permits, and have that work inspected, by putting these services online.

Industry customers can now apply online for Single Construction Permits, or new home permits in developing communities online. As we move forward additional residential permits will become available online over the next few years.
