King County's 8-city E-Permitting System

The permitting process is one that lends itself to automation, and moving to an e-permitting system has the potential to reap huge rewards.

An outstanding example of a jurisdiction that has successfully implemented e-permitting is King County, Washington... a unified, multi-city e-permitting portal that provides a single resource where contractors working in multiple jurisdictions can not only get permit information, but also apply for over-the-counter (OTC) permits, submit payments, and request other services regarding building sites anywhere in the eight-city area.
