Welcome to Online Services

Seamlessly connecting with our community and delivering the highest quality development services in a transparent, cost effective, and timely manner is critical to our mission as an organization.

The Public Permit Portal will enable you to remotely submit permit applications and electronic plans, pay fees, track progress, complete permit issuance, schedule and receive inspection results, and more, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The City invites you to register and utilize the Public Permit Portal powered by the POSSE Land Management System (LMS). Begin streamlining your development projects without visiting City Hall, waiting in lines for service, or printing paper plans, saving you time and money.

Please review the brief “how to” videos provided for your convenience below along with the tutorials to assist you in navigating the portal as you register, submit permit applications and track projects.
