Available Now –

The City of Post Falls has updated their current Permitting Program and online Permit Portal.  The online Permit Portal is more streamlined and user friendly.  This Portal allows our customers to apply for Building, Planning and Engineering applications. Customers are able to apply, upload plans and documents, pay fees online, track and schedule their own inspections on their customer dashboard page.

To utilize the Customer Permitting Portal you will need to apply for an account.  We ask that you create one account per company.  By creating only one account anyone within your Company will have the availability to submit and check the status of plan reviews and inspections.  Therefore, you will need to create a generic group email, just as we have for our permit technicians, (  If someone within your company has already submitted for an account any additional requests will be denied.  Once you receive a confirmation email you may go back and login to your new account.  If you have any questions/concerns please feel free to contact
