Application Forms

The Planning Department is working to transition to an online permitting system. Currently, some permits can be applied for online through the Accela online permitting system which accepts online payments. The remaining applications are PDFs that can be completed and printed and must be submitted in person to the Planning Department and paid for by cash or check only. Thank you for your patience as we migrate to this new system.
