Commercial Building Permit Online June 1st 2014
May 12, 2014
Many customers have inquired about when we will expand our suite of e-government services to include electronic review of commercial building permit applications. We are pleased to announce that Growth Management's target date for beginning this new service (for projects with a valuation greater than $25,000) is June 1, 2014!
This service will be provided through City Projects, which is a group of software applications that will help Growth Management get one step closer to being 100 percent paperless in permit applications. City Projects, as brought to you by ProjectDox, is an online application submittal and electronic review for commercial building permits with a valuation greater than $25,000 will be available from the convenience of your office. The purpose of this new service is to make the permitting process more efficient and convenient for our customers!
Between now and our target date of June 1 for beginning the new electronic service in building inspection, staff will be engaged in comprehensive outreach efforts to our customers to provide training on the new processes. In addition to a long list of potential training dates to choose from, staff is also accepting appointments for one-on-one and group training sessions from the building community.

We are happy to hold these sessions at our customers' offices or at the Growth Management offices, whichever is more convenient for our customers. We look forward to providing this new service and to obtaining your feedback on how we can continue to make improvements that enhance your experience with the Growth Management Department.
