Harford County Launches Online Permit Center

Harford County recently launched its new “ePERMIT CENTER”, allowing real-time status of permits, plans, and inspections to be viewed online. This online service can be accessed 24/7 from the convenience of your home, office or mobile device.

According to Harford County’s press release,

The ePERMIT CENTER lets users search for residential, commercial, and other types of permits with a permit number or property address and track a permit’s lifespan from issuance to completion. Users can also check on the daily schedule and status of county inspections, and search the status of plans submitted to the Dept. of Planning & Zoning for proposed developments.  The new online capabilities complement the full services of the county’s redesigned Permit Center which opened in September on the first floor of the county administrative office building at 220 S. Main St. in Bel Air.

“A primary goal of my administration has been to streamline government and make use of modern technology to improve customer service,” said County Executive Barry Glassman.  “Building on the success of our Permit Center, I am pleased that we can now begin offering services online, freeing citizens from having to come to our offices and allowing us to serve more customers in less time.”

Additional services coming soon to the ePERMIT CENTER will allow electricians, plumbers, and other trade professionals to apply for and manage their trade permits, trade licenses, and registrations online.  Citizens online will soon be able to schedule inspections and apply for and renew dog licenses.

The ePERMIT CENTER is accessible via a button on the homepage of the county website www.harfordcountymd.gov.
