Building permits have been available online since 2011. This popular option is coming to Planning and Engineering permits and land use actions in 2018.
Online Planning applications begin by emailing a simple online intake request form to the City. A Planning Technician assists you thereafter through the process and provides you an email address to send your application materials to the Planning Department.
Online Engineering permit applications are similar. You email your application form to the City, and a Public Works Technician assists you through the process.
Online Building, Plumbing, Mechanical & Fire permits are obtained by following a few simple directions.
Online application eliminates the need to provide multiple plan sets at submittal. Thereafter, plan review, approval instructions, permit issuance, and any correction cycles also occur online.
Should you elect to pay fees online as well, the entire process can be completed without a trip to City Hall.
So, now, you may use traditional paper submittals or this new electronic method. Your choice.
The City of Gig Harbor is proud to offer this convenient new efficiency to our City applicants.
