Explanation of Performance

A strong economy, in combination with business opportunities, can result in a greater number of permit applications. As the City grows, there has been a constant increase in the number of permit applications received.
NOTE:  Due to the decommissioning of the Combo Permit jobs and the current unavailability of the new Home Improvement Permit data, not all application information is available at this time.
