Fort Worth changing commercial building permit submission system

🕐 1 min read

The City of Fort Worth is changing how new commercial building permits can be submitted. Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, applications for new commercial building permits will only be accepted online. Accepting these permits online will save time and resources for customers and staff, according to a city news release.

New commercial building permits include new construction and additions. Remodel permits can be applied for online but will also be accepted in paper format.

Currently, all commercial building permits are accepted online through the city’s Accela permitting system. This includes new commercial permits, additions, remodels, accessory structures and change of uses. The associated trade permits are also available for online application, as are contractor registrations.

A guide for submitting documents and online training videos are available on the city’s website.

After submitting the permit applications, plan review comments will be available through Accela Citizen Access. Once plans are approved and the permit is issued, customers can download the approved set of plans and print them, along with the plan review notes and inspection card to post at the construction site for building inspectors. Inspections can also be scheduled online, and the inspection results can be reviewed, too.
