This loads an app that steers you through the permitting process. First you select your property on a map, and then you apply for a permit. Don't know what type of permit you need? No problem! The permitting app will figure it out for you based on information you provide. 

For Zoning and Engineering permits, this app lets you upload your plans electronically and submit the application. For County Building/Health permits, this app tells you which permits you need and provides links to the appropriate agencies and forms. 

Additional permitting guides and instructions are provided below. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact the City Planner at (937)376-7285.
