Permits Online

Welcome to the City of Santa Cruz Planning and Community Development

online permitting system, eTrakiT!

We are committed to providing the very best customer service and to streamlining the permitting process by allowing our customers to access residential and building project and permit information online.  In addition, we are offering a Business License search for your convenience.  Through this portal users will have the ability to view records and check status without logging in. Contractors will have the ability to view permit status, schedule and cancel inspections. When fully implemented in early fall of 2015, Contractors will also have the ability to apply and pay for select building permits.
