Online Inspection Scheduling

Please note: Project information found on the City's Project Tracking System (PTS) for the initial years of its existence may not be as inclusive, detailed, or comprehensive as that found for more recent projects. Many of the projects found on PTS may include only basic information. The most complete source for project details on approved projects and permits can be found within the physical project files stored within the City's official files, which are stored in DSD's Records Management Division.

You can now schedule your inspections 24/7 at any computer or smart phone with internet access.
