Re: Permit application process

Beginning December 1, 2022 the Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau will be going live onto the Grand Traverse County EnerGov online permitting system. Please use the link below to access the customer portal to apply for all permits and upload your documents. This system allows for paying fees online and the release of permits electronically to aid in customer convenience. Hard copy plans and applications may also still be dropped off at the office at 897 Parsons Rd. however our goal is to have all applications and documents submitted online. Plan reviews will also be done electronically and available on the portal. Please remember to print the plan reviews and permits for your field staff to have on the job site.

As with any change there may be issues and hiccups along the way. If you come across any errors or have trouble with submissions please let me know directly at [email protected]

Thank you for your patience as we bring this process online.
