Policies, Forms, Maps

We are excited to announce a new streamlined process for submitting and paying for electrical permits and new service applications. 

On March 18, we converted to Accela, the City of Tacoma’s enterprise permitting solution.  

Accela is your one-stop shop for permitting and inspection management. It is available 24/7 to apply for permits, check permit status, make secure online payments, and schedule/cancel/reschedule inspections. Registering for an account gives you access to additional features: 

  • Manage/view/print your permits 
  • Apply for permits and applications for new electrical services 
  • Check the status of your permits and applications 
  • Add your contractor license to an existing account 
  • Create delegates (permit other users to perform actions on your behalf) 

Setting up an account is easy! Visit CityofTacoma.org/Permits.
