1. If you have a permit number, you can go directly to the “ibuild” site and look up a permit:
At this site you will need to set up an account (just a username, email and password)
2. If you do not have a permit # you will need to either fill out the following form and send it to the city:
Go the Building Department and request the copies in person. Below is the information to request in person. For either of these steps you will need an address and folio number (Property Tax ID#).
