Online Permitting

As part of these changes, we ask that you submit all permitting packages, including all site plans, via our online permitting portal.

Please visit our Online Permitting Site here, and follow the below instructions to get started:

  1. Click on the tab labeled: “Request Login”
  2. Fill out the information requested. Please make sure to complete all lines, and then click “Submit.”
  3. At that point, an email will be sent to the Building Division. We will create an account for you and send you an email with your user name and temporary password.
  4. Once you receive the email, you may then log in to your account by entering the provided username and temporary password on the CPSS site.
  5. When you log in, you will be prompted to reset your password.
Once you have completed this process you will be able to submit for permitting through the CPSS online permitting system. You will also be able to make payments, check plans review statuses, schedule inspections, and check inspection results.  If you have any issues with registering please contact our office at (352) 463-3173, and one of our permit specialists will assist you.
