Welcome to Citizen Access Portal, the fastest way to get information on plans and construction in the City of Columbus.
If you are a citizen or a licensed contractor you may obtain information from this site. You can search for Permits and Plans in several different ways. You can see the scheduled inspections for a certain date.
If you are a contractor you must register first in order to request an inspection or to apply for any electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and gas permits. Once you have registered, you will receive an email informing you if you have been approved to use this site as a contractor.
Inspections requested before 3:00 PM will be scheduled the following business day. Any inspections requested after 3:00 PM will be performed on the 2nd business day. Concrete can be scheduled the same day as long as the inspection is requested before 8:30 AM. When emergency repairs are needed, notify the Inspections and Code Department before beginning work.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new Citizens Access Portal site please contact Marsha Thomas with Inspections & Code at 706-225-3889 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to bring forward initiatives that will make building in the City of Columbus easier and efficient.
