Goodyear makes getting these permits easy!
Avoid waiting in line or coming down to the city’s offices and apply for a permit in the comfort of your office or home with our ”Permit by Email” program!
If you would like to sit down with a Building Safety Plan Reviewer and file an application in person, you may utilize our "Over the Counter Plan Review" program. This option also keeps you from waiting in line and ensures that your permit questions and application get the time you need so that your project goes smoothly.
”Tracking Building Permits Online” also makes your experience easier!
