Virtual Permit Center

Community Development offers virtual permit center meetings allowing customers the ability to schedule one-on-one online time with staff for assistance with general permitting, land use, and development questions. For permit applications and general questions, please visit our Permits page. For customers with further questions, virtual permit center meetings can be scheduled directly with the service group you are interested in based on your project.

If you’re unable to accommodate a virtual meeting, you’re still welcome to stop by our office at 1 E. Main St, on the second floor.
