Do I Need an Account to Apply Online?

Contractors MUST have an account to apply for a permit. Once you (contractors) have created an online account, call the Building Department at (770) 487-8901 or the Planning Department at (770) 487-5731. We will need the email address that you used to create your online account in order to change your account status to a Contractor account. This is required so you can apply for permits on any property in the City.

Homeowners do not need to create an account to request a permit on their property however an account will be required to follow the status of the application and to submit revised documents for review if required.


Select 'How to Apply Online' from the menu to the left for more information on how to create an account and how to apply for a permit.  PDF versions of the instructions are also available.
