The public now has a faster, more convenient method of meeting many of its permitting needs through the City of Lakewood.

The Community Development Department has introduced an online permitting system that residents can utilize via the City’s website.

City of Lakewood Online Permitting System

The City’s new online module allows users to run queries and view the different permits for a specific property. If you’re a contractor who has applied for a permit, you can check the status of your permit as well. You can also schedule inspections online and check the status of the inspection request.

But that’s not all. The City’s new system allows users to apply and pay online for two types of permits: hot water tank replacement and furnace replacement.

Finally, business owners can renew their City business licenses online. (Note: Those applying for a new business license will still have to either print an application and bring it to City Hall, or apply directly at City Hall, 6000 Main Street SW).
