The Wellesley Building Dept. will be closing early (at 1 PM) on Fridays during the month of March.
This temporary schedule change will allow for staff training on the Town's new online permitting system from ViewPoint Cloud. Soon residents and/or their contractors will be able to:
- apply online for a building, sheet metal, plumbing, gas fitting, or electrical permit;
- submit digital copies of plans and construction documents;
- pay applicable fees via credit card or ACH direct-debit from most major banks; and
- track the status of a submitted application or issued permit in real time.
For examples of how the ViewPoint Cloud system works in other communities, visit the online permitting portals in the Towns of Westwood, Cambridge and Shrewsbury.
Online permitting for the Wellesley Building Dept. will debut in April. At that time, the Dept. will return to its regular business hours of 8 AM to 4 PM.
