Building Permit records can be reviewed online 24/7.
Simply Go to the Virtual Permit Center, and as shown in the example below, select the type of permit (Building, Planning or Engineering) and enter the Permit Number or Address you want to search and then select the "Search" button.
If you wish to review permit documents and drawings, you may visit the permit center in person. If you wish to make copies of permit documents or drawings, during your visit to the Permit Center, the Permit Technicians will walk you through the process, including completing an Affidavit for Copy of Record (PDF) if the documents were prepared by a a licensed or registered professional.
Documents prepared by a licensed or registered individual are protected under state law as copy-righted documents. Before the City can release such documents, a records request will require written approval from both:
the design professional associated with the document
the property owner
The permit technicians will send the completed affidavit to both the property owner and to the design professional, where applicable.
