Database updates and information accuracy

Information in the Look Up a Permit or Inspection application is updated in real time. When an inspector uploads inspection results, they are visible immediately.

While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of this information, portions may not be accurate incorrect or not current due to the progressive nature of construction projects. Any person or entity who relies solely on information obtained from this system does so at their own risk.
