LDS Operational Status

As we adjust to new guidelines associated with the novel coronavirus, the Department of Land Development Services (LDS) and our partner agencies are developing alternate methods to deliver permit and inspection services for your projects. We will use this web page to point you to our services and keep you apprised of any changes.

EFFECTIVE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25

ALL building permits and plans must be submitted electronically, and MOST site-related plans and documents can and should be submitted electronically.

TOOLS TO NAVIGATE ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS

Site-Related Submissions

Site Applications Center and Site Development and Inspection Division (SDID) will use a file transfer application (Sharefile) to process/review ALL site-related records that aren’t already part of our electronic plan review program, ProjectDox. Access instructions here.

Building-Related Submissions

Submit all permit applications and plans electronically, as described at our Interim Counters page.

Site Records Viewer

Site Records Viewer provides 24-hour access to thousands of records.
