The Building Division accepts applications for permits to replace residential water heaters, gas line repairs, lawn sprinkler installations, electric heat pump replacement or repair, window replacement, or roof-mounted solar photo voltaic installations online.

The link button below allows you to complete your permit application.  There is no charge for these permit types; fees are waived under the Homeowner's Relief Act.

You must include a valid e-mail address when applying for a permit.  When your permit application is processed, we will only send notification to the e-mail address you provide.

We will make every effort to respond the same day if your application is received early in the business day, but please allow up to three working days for processing.  You will be contacted with a disposition.  If the permit is issued, we will provide your permit Record ID and tracking numbers and information on how to call for inspections.  Please make sure to tell the inspector that you are an online permittee.

Currently the following browsers are supported when applying for permits online:

  • Internet Explorer 8 and 9, 32-bit

By clicking the Online Permit Application button above, I affirm the following:

That NO work or installation will commence prior to the issuance of a permit and that all work will be performed to meet the standards of all laws regulating construction/operation in this jurisdiction.  I hereby agree that I will, in all respects, perform the work in accordance with the scope of the permit, the County-adopted building codes and all other applicable laws, regulations, standards and ordinances.

That all information given will be accurate and that all work will be done in compliance with all applicable laws regulating construction and zoning.

Help Guide: For assistance applying for a permit online, please see the How to Apply for a Permit in Accela Citizen Access guidance document, and the roof-mount solar PV online application guidance document.

Notes: This online application is restricted exclusively to permits for the replacement of residential water heaters (without alteration or modification to the electrical or gas system), gas line repairs, lawn sprinkler installations, window replacement with no net openable area change, and roof-mounted solar photo voltaic installation that do not require a meter upgrade.  Any work beyond this scope cannot be permitted online and is expressly not permitted by submittal of this application for a permit.
