MECKLENBURG COUNTY TO LAUNCH NEW BUILDING PERMIT AND INSPECTION SYSTEM
Current System to Shut Down During Thanksgiving Holiday for Changeover
Charlotte, NC - Contractors, builders and do-it-yourselfers need to plan ahead when applying for building permits and scheduling building inspections through Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement. The permit and inspection computer system will shut down during the Thanksgiving holiday period in order to install a newly designed system.
The system will be shut down between 5 p.m., Wednesday, November 26, and 8 a.m., Monday, December 1. Any contractor, builder, developer or homeowner who needs an inspection immediately following the holiday should schedule that inspection by 5 p.m., November 26. Also, no permits will be accepted online after 5 p.m. on Monday, November 24. Permits may be brought to Code Enforcement's offices at 700 North Tryon Street.
The new computer system, accessed through the Web site
www.meckpermit.com, will allow contractors and other customers easier access to a wider variety of information relating to their projects. The upgrades include easier navigation, printer-friendly pages, inspectors' and plan reviewers' comments, and easier access to inspectors' contact information.
Code Enforcement has scheduled training sessions to introduce customers to the new permitting and inspection computer system. The training schedule and other information is available on the Web site, in customers' billing statements, at the Hal Marshall County Services Center at 700 North Tryon Street, or by calling 704-336-3545.
