We hope you and your family are coping with this unprecedented situation. The City and Development Services Department (DSD) recognize the essential importance of construction activity to the well-being of our community. In order to serve you during this time, we need your help! To ensure that permits and inspections are completed efficiently- and most importantly, safely– please read the messages below. Thank you!
Finally, a few reminders:
  • DSD’s physical location is closed to the public. There are bins to drop off and pick up paper plans and permits if absolutely necessary. Permits submitted using the Development Portal will be prioritized for processing and routed for staff review more quickly.
  • Customers may call and email staff as usual. Our main number is 828-259-5846. Please have patience with us, as there may be a higher-than-normal call volume. Additional contact information is available on this page.
  • Staff remain available for pre-construction and early assistance meetings by remote video conference. Use the buttons on the Development Portal to sign up.
  • Please check the DSD home page often for updates!
