New Online Development, Licensing and Permitting Portal Coming July 13

On July 13, the City of Fayetteville will be implementing a new web-based system called EnerGov™ to handle applications and payments for Planning, Engineering, Building Safety, Business Licensing, Alcoholic Beverage and HMR/Supplemental Beverage. The upgrade is part of an ongoing City initiative to streamline, simplify and automate these processes. In preparation for the launch of EnerGov™, the existing system for permit, planning and license applications will close down on July 8, allowing City staff time to move applications in process to the new system and test it before it becomes available for public use on July 13, 2020.

The new portal will guide users step by step through the application process and remove the need to submit documents separately to various City offices. Instead, users will upload all the necessary information and documentation in a single online system, which will then automatically forward the materials to the proper City departments. Users will also have the ability to log in to track the process of their application.

When EnerGov™ launches on July 13, Development Services and Accounting customers will be invited to create a login profile and register for the new system. Online video tutorials will be available to help users learn how to upload their materials and navigate the system.
