Residential Permit Night

Last Res Permit Night Dec 5, cancelled until March 5, 2020.

Residential Permit Night is being temporarily suspended due to the implementation of our new web-based permitting software that is placing additional demands on our staff. We look forward to resuming Residential Permit Night in March.
Thank you for your patience!
