STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford has launched Phase I of the city's new online application for building permits as well as a new "311 app," Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia announced Friday.
“Stamford Permit” will provide users with online access for permit applications and streamlined review, approval and issuance of permits, he said. In addition, the system provides the applicant with real-time tracking of departmental sign-offs and inspection efforts. Phase I will provide access to all types of building permits, including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, gas, and demolition.
"This is a critical addition to the City’s repositioned website with my goal of making City services as user friendly as possible," Pavia said in a statement. "The system will also provide real-time, web-based data available to all departments which will serve to streamline the permitting workflow. This change will save the applicant and the City time and money, while providing a much more user-friendly experience,”
Phase II of the permitting site will be the rollout all health department permits, such as restaurant, septic, housing and beauty, on Dec. 3.
The new "311 App" makes it easier for citizens to alert the city to any issues or questions they have regarding city services.
The app is available for download for Apple and Android phones.
