NEW! SagesGov Electronic Online Permitting
Easy to use e-permitting for any size project.
Submit, track, review, inspect, and close all in one place!

 

Please Note: All documents must be submitted “UNPROTECTED”. The new software will not allow “protected files” to be submitted. Please be sure your design professional has provided “UNPROTECTED” files. All required signatures must be digitally signed and sealed. If your permit application number is formatted as 21-3000 you must process through the Legacy system. Click here to re-route to the legacy system

Important: You will be working with 2 different permit/project numbers until we enter into Phase II of our new SagesGov software for inspections. You will use your Sages Project number (Example: RDWD-2021.05.1234) to track the status of your plan review and submit documents. Once your permit is issued and you are ready to start scheduling inspections, it is imperative your use the 6-digit permit number (Example 21-3000) from your yellow permit card and the unique corresponding PIN number. This inspection process will change once we enter into Phase II of our new SagesGov software.
