Permit and Inspection Services
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Department of Permit and Inspection Services webpage.
In January of 2010, I began laying out plans to improve the department - with the focus on convenience and better service to our visitors. Several changes have recently been implemented and we have been receiving positive feedback thus far. Among those changes:
The Department has addressed nearly 19,000 citizen-requested inspections over the last 12 months, with the purpose of creating safer environments for our local residents and businesses. The Department has also led the implementation of Mayor Brown’s aggressive demolition plan - to demolish 5,000 vacant and abandoned structures in five years.
Permit and license applications are increasingly becoming available online through the use of our E-permit service. We continue to seek ways to modernize our business practices in order to promote investment and growth in Buffalo.
Please do not hesitate to contact us – we will make every effort to be of assistance.
James Comerford, Jr., Commissioner
