Beginning July 24, 2023, The City of Palmdale Building and Safety Division will accept all permit applications and registrations via the Accela portal above. 

If you are having difficulty locating an existing permit or scheduling an inspection issued before 7/24/2023, your Accela account email may not be linked to the existing record converted over; therefore, you must have your email linked to your account. Please call us at or email building& to have your permit linked to continue work.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we transition into our new permitting system.
