Online Permitting and Plan Submission
Santa Rosa County's Information Technology department has been working with Development Services staff for the last few months to develop an online permitting and plan submission software. This new software will make the permitting process more efficient and will provide a single avenue for all development-related processes for citizens, contractors and developers. Through the online portal, an applicant will have the ability to check the status of a permit, submit additional documentation and request inspections.
"With a 42 percent increase in applications this past year, staff has been overwhelmed with the number of submissions," said County Administrator Dan Schebler. "We look forward to the increased efficiency and transparency the new software will bring and we appreciate our customers' patience over the past few months as we work towards the solution."
This new software will "go live" the first of 2021 and more information will be released closer to that time.
