[ARCHIVED] City Launches new App for Scheduling Building Inspections

iPhone with My Permits App

In order to make city building services easier to access and use, Building and Permit Services is launching a new smartphone app for scheduling building inspections. The new app, called “My Permits,” is available through the ITunes store or the Google store.

Users should first set up an account through the scheduling inspections login page on the city’s website using a computer with internet access. Once the app is installed on their phone, users can associate their active permit(s) with that account. When the app is opened, the list of permits is displayed and choosing the inspection to be scheduled is visual and fast

Over the last several years, Building and Permit Services has been developing new and innovative ways to serve their customers, both in the office and in the field – including on-line building inspection scheduling, mobile work stations for inspectors, and an online building permit search system.

On average, the City of Eugene receives 160 building inspection requests each day. These inspections help preserve and protect the public’s safety, as well as property values and the environment by ensuring that building and remodeling projects in our community meet safety standards. In addition to the new app and online scheduling, Inspection Support staff are also available Monday through Friday 7:30 am to 4:00 pm to assist with scheduling.
