How to apply online:

All permit types can be applied for online. If you are new to the system you will need to create an account. A first time user will need to create an account with Cloudpermit. If you have an account, log in.

Steps for successful submission:
  1. Once you log in, select "Create New Application".
  2. Create a name for your project.
  3. Find your address using the map, if you cannot find it by typing the address you can scroll through the map or enter it manually. If entering manually, please ensure you have correct information. Vacant land may not have an assigned address.
  4. Select the Building Permit Icon, then select the type of permit you would like to create (i.e. Residential Building - New Single Family Dwelling). Please note, Retaining Walls and Woodstoves can be found under the Miscellaneous section.
  5. Follow the steps to submitting the required documentation. Please be advised, each permit type requires a separate permit (i.e. Dwelling with porch, deck, wood burning fireplace, accessory structure and new septic all required separate permits and can not be combined under one).

You will be contacted if there is outstanding information or if we have questions.
