On Demand Services

Beginning on March 2, 2015, PDS will be offering customers who are submitting residential permit applications for their projects the opportunity to receive our services without a submittal appointment.  During the economic downturn and as a result of staff reductions the department initiated mandatory submittal appointments which can cause delays of up to 3 weeks for applicants wishing to submit their projects.  Recently we have been able to hire additional staff and wish to increase our level of service.

As PDS approaches the construction season for 2015 we wish to offer our customers On Demand Services. Applicants can continue to submit Complex Land Use Projects and Basic Applications and Plans (not submitted on line) through a scheduled appointment.  

For all other application types you may now come to the PDS front counter between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  Monday through Wednesday and Friday and sign in at the greeter station to meet with our staff.  Thursdays we are open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We are closed noon to 1:00 p.m. daily. No scheduled submittal appointment required!  We will call you in the order of your arrival and will review your application and submittal documents and determine if the project is complete for submittal purposes.  If your application is not considered complete we will provide you with information that indicates those items that are deficient and you can return to re-submit the application at your convenience.
