The City of Chicago is currently in Phase Four: "Gradually Resume." Many City services have adjusted hours or locations and may require health screens prior to entering their physical spaces. Please call ahead or visit any department's website to get additional details, or visit chicago.gov/covid-19.
The Department of Buildings (DOB) is working with the Mayor’s Office and the Chicago Department of Public Health to continue city services while helping to reduce the impact of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). To minimize the need to access City Hall for permitting services, please adhere to the following alternative procedure to submit easy permit applications for remote processing and electronic payment until further notice. This procedure is subject to change, so please check the DOB website at http://www.chicago.gov/buildings for updates and to sign up for email alerts.
