GO Green: Paperless Submittals 

Digital review is required for all commercial, industrial and residential projects, including Type I Property Line Adjustments & Final Plat applications, and all Type II & Type III applications.

Even though our application and plan submittal process is now digital, we still offer real human contact at our counter, on the phone, or via email.  We are pleased to offer personalized one-on-one training and have made changes to our permit center to make the transition as easy as possible.  If you would like to know more, please call or stop by our counter at the Civic Center.

Our commitment to fast, flexible, and friendly customer service has not changed and we're excited to show you the advantages of digital review.
