Hillsborough County Takes Next Step in Digital Permitting Transactions

You asked - we listened! Hillsborough County Development Services is taking a significant step to offer customers a simplified, fully-digital permitting transaction process from application to inspection.

In early 2021, Hillsborough County will finalize the launch of the custom HillsGovHub portal, an online development permitting solution that will provide 24/7 access to the permitting and licensing process. Building permit application choices will be streamlined to make choosing the right application type more intuitive for residential and commercial customers. The entirely digital system also enables staff to perform multiple reviews concurrently, allowing for faster application processing times. Additionally, the cloud-based system will provide increased transparency throughout the process and encourage greater collaboration between applicants and Hillsborough County.

The early 2021 launch includes many of the County's Land Development processes, such as building permitting, tree removal, and contractor licensing. Services not available during the initial launch are scheduled to be added in later phases of the system rollout.

More information, including live webinars, will be available in the coming weeks. Sign up to receive the latest HillsGovHub information via email!
