Whatcom County Planning (PDS) and Public Works Engineering Development (PWD) are in the process of transitioning to their new land use and permitting software Tyler EnerGov. The new software system is a huge advance in technology for the departments and once fully implemented will provide greater access and transparency to the public. This is the first phase of a three phase process with PDS and PWD implementing the new software in the back office; phase 2 will be a Customer Self Service Portal (CSS) and the 3rd phase will be integration with the Whatcom County Health Department’s Environmental Health Division.
PDS & PWD appreciate your patience as we transition to the new software system. This is a complicated process that may cause some delay in response and processing times. Incoming applications will be processed in the order received as we work our way through reconcilation of permits already in process and processing of new applications received.
