We are Modernizing - Please Excuse Our Dust
We are modernizing and undergoing a Floor Remodel Project with upgrades to the 7th Floor Front Counter and customer service areas. Please bear with us during the ongoing construction which is anticipated to conclude in Autumn 2015.
The service level of the Dept. of Planning & Development’s Permit Center will be significantly reduced on Monday, Oct. 5th between Noon and 5:00pm due to staff training. If possible, please plan your visit to avoid this time.
Again, thank you for your patience during this process.
