Permit & Development Center Re-Opening Information
On Monday, June 21st the Permit and Development Center will be reopening for in-person service. We will be open via appointment only on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. In an effort to clear projects already in our queue we will remain closed to customers all day on Wednesdays. Appointment slots will be available through Qless, our online check-in system, or by calling the Development Center at (414) 286-8210. For more information about QLess, please review this guide.
Appointments will be available for small commercial alterations (<5,000sf), as well as residential construction, fences, signs, zoning referrals, and occupancy applications. Appointments will help us moderate visitor traffic and provide better customer service by dedicating staff availability in a known quantity. Customers will still have the option of dropping off their applications/submittals for review.
As we transition to opening our doors we ask that you do the following to ensure we are able to best assist you as well as keep our staff and customers safe:
- Out of an abundance of caution, we are asking that all of our customers, in accordance with City of Milwaukee workplace guidelines, continue to wear masks when inside of our facilities. If you do not have a mask, no problem, we will be happy to provide you with one.
- Seating in our waiting room will be limited so that customers can remain socially distanced. Please limit the amount of time that you spend in this space by arriving promptly for your appointment. We also ask that you limit the number of individuals that will be visiting to only those essential to the transaction taking place.
- If you have an appointment please be sure you arrive on time and have all the information/documentation you will need. If you are not certain what to bring, please refer to our information sheets here or call us at (414) 286-8210.
