Datasets

Download or view data by clicking on the following links, or see download instructions for the GIS and tables here.  ArcGIS and ArcPro users can add City GIS data including the Online Map files below by going here and clicking on the three dots after each layer.

Note that tables typically represent all cases, while GIS datasets usually start from 2007, with the exception of building permits GIS, which covers the last ten years.  The tables and the "Cases" GIS layers are typically updated daily.  Building, Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, and Driveway and Sidewalk Permits GIS and Online Maps are updated weekly.  Data for these Permits are also covered in the Issued Construction Permits table.
