Building Permit Tracker

Track detailed Building Permits info from 1979 to this minute. View comments from plan examiners and inspectors in real time, as they are entered into the system via phone or computer. Search by:

  • Permit Number
  • Parcel Number (example: 14557-000-000)
  • Address (example: 220 S Main St)
  • Owner or Applicant Name (example: John Smith)
