Permit Center

The Permit Center is one of four divisions that make up the Department of Municipal Development. We encourage the construction industry to contact us with any questions about obtaining permit or contractor licenses. Best practices and methods guide us as we attempt to regulate all construction and demolition activity efficiently and effectively.

Permits will be issued and applications, inquiries, and complaints will be taken from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
