Once an account is established, MyPermitNow software allows permit applications to occur online rather than traveling to the Planning Department office.

Requesting an inspection time and date online is a feature allowed by the software, but users must provide at least a 24 hour notice for the request to be considered. Inspectors enter inspection results in the field to ensure that users receive the results in near real-time via e-mail or through the customer portal.
