Residents and contractors that are building or renovating their homes will have to receive a building permit prior to beginning their project.
The submission process includes compiling all the information about the project including the Master Building Permit Number, electrical contractor and the plans from a certified architect.
You must ensure that licensed contractors do the work if the homeowner doesn’t handle the job, as the City of Cincinnati issues permits only to contractors who are properly licensed.

There are three basic phases to the online building permit process, application submittal, plan review and construction inspection.
- From the EzTrak system, applications received are checked for completeness, all project information is stored into the computer system and a permit file is created.
- Documents must be sent in via PDF form and routed simultaneously to other City agencies for their approval.
- During plan review City staff reviews the permit application and building plans for compliance with the Zoning and Building codes. Plan review must be completed prior to the issuance of a building permit.
