Welcome to Greene County Online Permitting

Greene County now has the option for persons to apply, pay, track, and receive developmental permits all online without the need of visiting our office.  Our hope is that this new service will make the process of applying for permits easier and more accessible to applicants looking to build, develop, or operate in Greene County.  The new site, operated by OpenGov, is a one-stop shop for all planning, inspections, environmental, and fire permitting.

When accessing the site, applicants will have option to use one of the premade templates or to select individual permits, as they need.  Some of the premade options include:

  • New Residential Primary Structure
  • New Commercial/Non-Residential Primary Structure
  • Residential Addition. Renovations, and Accessory Structures
  • Commercial Additions, renovations, and Accessory Structures
  • New Business/Existing Structure – Change of Occupancy
  • Others to be added in the future

Premade templates will ask questions to determine what permits will be required and then allow the applicant to complete all permits needed for the project.

Applicants also have the option to select individual permits from each department at the bottom of the page.

The applicant will simply log in to the Greene County OpenGov site by creating a log in with their email and a password they will create.  Once the applicant has created a log in, they will be able to apply for permits, receive updates on the process of their applications by logging in to their account, pay for permits, and receive permits by email.

PLEASE NOTE:  For applicants to complete applications, the following information will be required:

  • Location of Site. If address is existing, simply enter in the address when prompted. If no address assigned, the applicant will use the map to pinpoint the location.
  • Property owner name and contact information. If the applicant is not the current property owner, they will need to know the owner’s name and mailing address.
  • Contractor Information. If applicant is not the contractor, applicant will need the contractor’s name, license number, mailing address, and email so that we can contact the contractor. If the contractor’s information is not available at the time of the application, the applicant can skip the section and submit it at a later time. PLEASE NOTE: Building permits will not issue until contractor’s information has been submitted and verified.
  • For new construction, drawings will be required that can be submitted in PDF Form
  • Site Plans may be required depending on size of property and location.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to give the Department for which you need help with a call and we will be happy to assist you.
