Online applications

The City of Piedmont has a new online permitting system called eTRAKiT. You can now apply for and track your application online. Paper and email applications are no longer accepted for most permit types. Please note that application materials created by Apple Corporation devices using the screenshot feature will not be accepted in eTrakit because they are incompatible with the eTrakit software.
