County Launches New ‘Building’ Website

Arlington County has launched a new website for residents and businesses. The site, Building Arlington, is being billed as a “one-stop shop for your Zoning, Permitting, Plan Review, Inspections and Code Enforcement needs.”

Building Arlington is an effort to simplify what the county admits “can be a confusing process.” For those looking to build a house, an addition, a store, or a new commercial building, the site offers the following features:

  • “Simplified design and content in a centralized location to find all Zoning, Inspection Services and Code Enforcement information.”
  • “Information uniquely relevant to our customers; whether you are a resident, business owner, contractor, developer or design professional.”
  • “Accessible on mobile devices from anywhere. Browse permit requirements, schedule inspections and zoning regulations via your smartphone, tablet or other devices.”
  • “Popular project content that explains the process and requirements to start and complete common building projects.”
  • “Resource library & keyword search so you can quickly access forms, applications, checklists and links to topically related resources.”
  • “Question & answer section for ‘commonly asked questions’ about development services.”
  • “Email sign-up for latest news on changes to zoning, codes and regulations.”
