On October 10, Mayor William Peduto and the City’s Departments of City Planning and Permits, Licenses, & Inspections unveiled “buildingeye”, a groundbreaking new website designed to make building permit, license, and code enforcement actions more accessible to Pittsburgh residents.
This tool allows residents to perform a range of functions, such as tracking items like building permits, building inspections, zoning applications, and business licenses. These items are searchable by address, neighborhood, zip code, or council district. Residents can even set alerts for their home neighborhoods. The tool will also allow residents to track violations and steps taken to address problem properties.
Mayor Peduto praised buildingeye at the announcement, saying “we have been committed to improving the way the public interacts with local government and buildingeye is the latest example of this innovative work. This tool will provide residents better transparency on city permits and neighborhood development.”
