BuildIT Online Permitting System

The Inspections Division of the Planning and Development Services Department activated in February 2017 a new online permitting system called BuildIT. A map-based solution, BuildIT offers more flexibility and ease-of-use than the previous online system, InspectNet. Please note that:

  • BuildIT cannot be used to apply for a building (construction) permit.
  • BuildIT allows licensed contractors to apply for trade permits (Plumbing, Electrical, Mechanical/HVAC).

Access Levels

The system allows two levels of access: Guest and Contractor.

  1. Guests
  2. Contractors

Guest Access Level Functions

Anyone may access the BuildIT system as a guest without creating a login/account. Guest access allows you to:

  • Make payments by credit card on any permit
  • Search for permits
  • View inspection comments
  • View the status of a permit
  • View the status of a plan review

Guests are not able to schedule inspections or apply for trade permits.
