Vail Community Development Department launches web portal

Daily staff report
newsroom@vaildaily.com

VAIL — Customers of the Town of Vail Community Development Department now have access to a new 24/7 online portal to submit applications for contractor registration and various construction-related permits, fire permits and public works permits.

The portal, at vail.onlinegovt.com, also accepts planning applications for review by the Vail Design Review Board and Planning and Environmental Commission. In addition, residents can access the citizen portal to submit a code-enforcement request or check to see the status of any permit activity in their neighborhood.

The introduction of the new citizen portal is an initiative of the Community Development Department to improve citizen access to the services provided by the department and further streamline the town's development-review processes and reduce costs to the customers.

The town staff has been working for more than a year to customize the portal to provide efficiencies for the community. More than 50 customers have already received training on the new application process. Additional training classes have been scheduled throughout May. Training is offered to any member of the public who would like more information on how to use the citizen portal.

For more information about the training, contact Shelley Bellm in the Community Development Department at 970-479-2325. To view frequently asked questions, go to vailgov.com/online-services.
