Online Services Overview
We want you, as project planners, to have access to status updates and other resources whenever you need them. Throughout the development process, you may need and want to review and submit plans, apply for permits, check on the
status of your plat or plan, schedule inspections and perform other tasks. Many of these tasks can be taken care of using our online system.
You can also sign up to receive e-mail notifications and alerts when permits and other project requirements have been approved, as well as estimate the fees you will have to pay for various applications. The following sections provide
resources, lists and applications for you to access as you complete your development project:
