ATTENTION CONTRACTORS AND HOMEOWNERS
The Gainesville Building Department has implemented our new ‘on-line’ internet Inspection program called CITIZEN ACCESS.
What is it? CITIZEN ACCESS is an internet web site where you can register with the City of Gainesville Building Department and request building inspections on-line. You will no longer have to come to the Building Department or call us. Everything you need to do to request an inspection will be available via internet at your convenience 24/7 .
Who can use it? If you have a computer, internet access and a business e-mail, contractor e-mail, or personal e-mail address, you will be able to use CITIZEN ACCESS.
How it works: Once you have applied and paid for a building permit and the work has been completed and is ready for inspection, you can go to the GRU CITIZEN ACCESS web site and request the inspection on-line. Your request will be automatically assigned to a Building Inspector. It’s as simple as that.
No more gas costs, drive time, phone calls or waiting. CITIZEN ACCESS will save you time and money.
(See the Citizen's Access tutorial on the Inspections page of our website for more information on how to register.)
As of November 22, 2013, the Building Inspection Department has offered extended permitting hours. The Building Inspection Department is now open to the public for permitting on Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. until further notice.
