Central Permit Office


The Central Permit Office helps residents and businesses request permission for different types of projects in the city. For example, the Central Permit Office helps:

  • Residents get permits for home improvement projects, like putting up a fence or building an addition.
  • Businesses get licenses and improve and inspect their properties.


Note: It can take time for us to process your permit application, depending on what you need. We thank you in advance for your patience.


Before you build or begin your next project, learn where you can locate your business or residence in the City of Syracuse by using our Zoning & Permitting Discovery Tool. Please be advised that this is a guide, not an application form.
