Permitting

Permitting is responsible for completeness review of permit packages, processing of permit applications, routing to necessary departments, and permit issuance.

You must register with our BADS Online Services system to apply for a permit. 

Our new Online Services portal allows you to:

  • remotely submit applications and payments for permitting, licensing, planning and zoning
  • search for permits and track your project’s progress from submittal through final approval from the convenience of your connected home/office computers or mobile devices

Some permit applications required additional documents to be uploaded. You can access our forms library by visiting our Online Services Resources page.
