Self-Service Permit Portal

The City will be transitioning to a paperless system for all permits in Spring of 2021.  The web-based, Self-Service Permit Portal (SSPP) is currently being configured for use and tested by staff to ensure it will meet the needs of our customers, applicants, and the public.


The official "go live" date will be in mid-March, and at that time you will find a link to access the SSPP here.


In the meantime, browse the information below to learn more.  Detailed user guides are provided at the bottom of this page, containing instructions for how to use the SSPP.  If you have questions please contact Planner Brooke Eidem.
