The Community Development Department offers a 24/7 Accela Citizens Access (ACA) portal to interact with the county's permits, licenses & code violations database. For those who only want to search the database, a "How to" guide titled "How to Research Permit & Inspection Information Online" is found in the right column of this page under "Related Links."
Some areas of the portal are for licensed contractors ONLY which requires registration for an account (i.e. applying for a permit, paying a fee or scheduling an inspection). A guide for account registration titled "How to Register for an ACA Online Account (Contractors Only)" is found in the right column of this page under "Related Links."
Note: registration is NOT required to only view/search the online database or to report code violations.
