DUNWOODY, Ga. — The City of Dunwoody is moving to an online permit processing system designed to save time and money.
Residents and contractors now can file forms and submit payments through a website, which can be accessed at dunwoodyga.gov/permits
“We want to make the permit and inspections process more convenient for everyone,” Dunwoody Community Development Director Richard McLeod said. “Instead of making a special trip to City Hall to file, the forms can be submitted online. This streamlines the process for applicants and staff.”
The online system allows for submittals and resubmittals of building permits, land disturbance permits and sign permits.
For temporary sign permits, customers can apply online, but once approved, customers must come to City Hall to get the approval sticker.
The new system allows for online fee payments after the permit is processed. Inspections will also be scheduled through the system.
“This new system supports our sustainability initiatives,” McLeod said. “Some major development projects require giant rolls of paper. Now, plans can be submitted online, which cuts down on paper and helps save trees.”
Community Development staff will still be available at City Hall to answer questions and help with the permit process.
