Department of Permits, Licenses, and Inspections

Our mission is to provide a better quality of living to the residents of the City of Pittsburgh. Director Maura Kennedy has been leading PLI since 2013. Throughout her tenure, she has commissioned technological advancements to increase efficiency and improve the customer experience to better serve our residents.

Please explore our site to experience the changes first hand including accepting credit cards as a form of payment, monthly newsletters and community forums, publically available data, tracking building permits and code violations online, permit application checklists and bulletins, and so much more! You can watch Director Kennedy address these recent changes from our December Community Forum.

If you have any questions, or would like to speak with someone in person, please call 412-255-2175. For the most up-to-date information about PLI, check out our Community Resources page.
