Online Building Permit Applications
The City of Ithaca is now offering online building permit applications for your convenience. You can apply for a permit from your home or office using a desktop computer. Complete the online application and remit the fee for the permit process to begin. The new process will allow the Code Inspector to contact you via email or by phone to review the application and request additional information needed for plan review. To submit your documents, you can use email, cloud service, US mail, or in person delivery. Please note that the City cannot accept credit card payment at this time. A check or money order payable to the City of Ithaca must be received prior to processing your application. The Building Division will accept applications in person by appointment only if necessary. We encourage you to use the online Permit Wizard to save you time and streamline the permit process.
