We are now accepting these permit applications online:
- New permits and revisions to issued permits for 100% affordable housing projects and Development Agreement projects
- Addenda for already submitted digital in-house review permits
- Resubmission response to a plan check comment
All other new permits
We process applications in the order they are received.
If you do not see an entry for your application in PTS, it has not been inputted into the permit tracking system.
When we receive an application, we conduct a quality review of each submission. We send the application for staff entry into PTS or for staff to schedule an over-the-counter drop-off appointment.
We will email you when your application is ready for the next step.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we route your application through the permitting process.
See our summary of where applications are in this initial review step.
