The eTRAC website allows users with Internet access to conduct searches for permits or plan reviews by either address, permit type, permit number, issue date, or other search fields, and view the status of these permits.  Click here to access the eTRAC Quick Reference Guide "Information Available to the Public on Building Permits and Site Plans without Logging into eTRAC", which will show users who are not registered with the site how to search for permits and access information through this website.  

Users are also able to register with the City on the eTRAC site, and after their registration is approved, these users are able to log in and apply for certain types of permits online, see details regarding a specific plan review comment or inspection, request inspections if they are the licensed contractor, and pay invoiced fees on-line using most credit cards.  To register, users must click "Register" on the eTRAC site and provide the required information, and either complete an eTRAC Online Account Authorization Form for their company, or be listed on a company's form that has already been completed and approved.
