Introducing the New Inspection Scheduler:

You asked, we listened! Over the last few months, we have worked hard to improve our process for scheduling inspections. We are excited to announce that our new system is available for you to use online. With this new online portal, you can search inspection histories, check the status of your permit, and schedule single or multiple inspections. Check it out here!

Other News:

Last December, the City of Hillsboro upgraded its Citywide permitting system to better serve our customers. In addition to modernizing the City’s processes and making it easier for customers to find information and track their projects, this new system, called “Accela Automation,”  also integrates the City’s Planning, Engineering, Code Enforcement, Water and Building Departments into one streamlined system. This means better coordination and faster service for our customers, along with offering more transparent data and allowing for more efficient use of City resources.
