IMPORTANT NOTICE: Processing Delay due to Software Upgrade

In the coming weeks we will be transitioning to our new permitting software. This new technology will deliver the system modernization the city needs to help streamline our processes by integrating operations into one location while expanding self-service capabilities. During this transition, staff will be temporarily entering applications in multiple programs. As a result, you may notice a longer than normal wait time. Providing excellent customer service will remain our top priority during this transition. We appreciate your patience and understanding and encourage you to contact our staff with any questions. 

  • If your permit number resembles any of the following: BLD-19-01362, ENG-19-01428, FDP-19-01556 or PLZ-19-01219, please use the SmartGov portal. If your permit number resembles any of the following: BLDR-19-10000, ENG-19-10000, ENGROW-19-10000, FDPR-19-10000 or PLZP-19-10000, please use the EnerGov portal.
  • To request an inspection through our new Citizen Self Service portal, you must first register to create an account. For assistance, please contact the Development Services Permit Center at 623-349-6200. We are committed to providing the best service possible, but due to the high volume of inspection requests, we are unable to accommodate AM or PM specific requests. We appreciate your patience during this time of transition.

Inspection Cut-Off Time 

Inspections are required at certain milestones in the construction permit process. When you want your next inspection, you can request one online.

Please be sure to provide the project address and permit number with any inspection request. If an inspection is made and the work is not approved, you must make the necessary corrections before continuing any further construction activity. Work may be stopped at any time for non-compliance to codes and/or approved plans.

Inspection Request Portal

In an ongoing effort to enhance customer service, the city of Buckeye Development Services Department will upgrade our existing system for requesting inspections beginning on March 4, 2019.

In order to access the online inspection request portal, you will need to create an account. We appreciate your patience during this time of transition.

For civil inspections, please contact your Civil Inspector.

If you are a new customer to Buckeye, you will need to create an account. Please follow these instructions to create an account. Once your account is created, please contact us at 623-349-6200 to receive your access code.
