Growth Management is currently in the process of implementing new permit tracking software.  Implementation is a phased process that will continue to affect our permit review process until perfected.  You may experience a longer review turn around than usual due to the phased upgrade.   Please know that Growth Management is dedicated to providing the best customer service possible and that we appreciate your patience and understanding during this process. During the software transition, OPIS (Online Permit Information System) is available for legacy permit information as well as EnerGov CSS (Customer Self Service) for permits processed in EnerGov.
