Why? This free online 24-hour permitting system will help streamline the building inspection process by allowing the public the ability to request and schedule building inspections, have real-time access to permit and inspection information, and view feedback on inspection results – all in the convenience of their own home. As a digital platform, City Squared will provide increased transparency throughout the transaction process. 

What’s in it for me? In addition to processing and managing permits, inspections, and certificates of occupancy (COs), as well as other Town agency approvals, the software has the ability for owners/contractors to:

  • Schedule inspections online
  • Access permits online to check the following: permit application status, inspection results, and permit and CO issuance conditions
