New Online Business Feature Goes Live for Lakewood

One of many upcoming online features allows property owners to seek building permit inspection requests online

LAKEWOOD, Wash., (March 7, 2011) - On March 14, the City of Lakewood will launch an online inspection scheduling feature on the city's website. This tool will allow citizens and contractors to request an inspection for building permits, issued by the city, at any time of day in a matter of minutes.

"This initiative is part of an ongoing effort to make city services more user-friendly," said Lakewood spokesman Jeff Brewster.

The turnaround time for scheduling inspections will remain the same as requests received from the current phone message line. The number for requesting inspections will still be available and can be dialed at (253) 512-2266. Questions regarding the inspection process should be directed to the Community Development Department at (253) 512-2261.

The online feature will be available through this link: /departments/community-development/inspection-request.html.
