How do I view or request a copy of building permits or building plans?

Permit information including inspection records dating back to 2007 can viewed on the City E-Trakit Citizen Portal. Permit information and plans prior to 2007 may be viewed in person at City Hall through the City Record System. An appointment is required to view public records in person. 

  • Documents or plans that bear the stamp/signature of a licensed, registered, or certified professional must formally be requested through the City Clerk's office.
