County permit database now available online

Visitors to San Juan County’s website can now access building and permit information and make online permit payments of up to $250. The Department of Community Development and Planning announced today that it has completed a successful test of the system with a limited number of users and is now opening it to the general public.

Users can now retrieve up-to-the-minute information on permits issued after Oct. 23, 2009, including hearing information on land use permits, through the new CDP web page. Registration is not required to view permit data; a simple registration process is available to individuals and businesses who wish to make payments online.

The new search and permit payment features can be accessed through the CDP home page at by selecting the third menu item: “Online Permit Inquiry & Credit Card Payments.”  There is also an online help file, with detailed instructions for searches and payments, available on the CDP home page under “Bulletins.”

In the future, CDPD plans to offer online inspection scheduling and single-trade, plumbing, and mechanical permit applications.
