Helpful Tips

  • When entering an address to view a permit, you may enter the street number and the first few letters of the street name followed by an asterisk (*), then hit search. 

    • For example, entering “1150 Ha*” would show permits for 1150 Half Day Road.
    • Two periods (..) can be used to search a range.  For example, 09/07/2009..09/09/2009 will retrieve all the permits from 09/07/2009 to 09/09/2009.
