The B&S Division will send you periodic updates on the status of your permit application at key milestones, like when the permit application has been processed and when the plans have been reviewed, or when the plans have been approved, etc.
You can also check the status of your permit, even if you have not received a notification from B&S.
The fastest way to check the status of a permit or permit application is by using the County’s permit portal, “Citizen Access.”
To use Citizen Access, you must have a valid Permit Record number, and you must have already created a Citizen Access account. If you do not already have a Citizen Access account, you can create a free account here.
Once you have established access to Citizen Access, follow the prompts until you find your Permit Record number, then view the status by clicking on that record.
If you prefer to talk with us, you can call the Permit Technician who is processing your permit application, or the Plans Examiner who is reviewing your plans for a status update. Although we will be happy to assist you with the information you need about the status of your permit application, we discourage frequent calls for this service, as these can reduce the time allocated for actual permit processing and review, which delays all projects.
