Planning & Inspections

Committed to helping our City reach these goals by efficiently and effectively providing direct services to El Paso's businesses, residents, visitors, and development and construction community, including planning and land development, building permitting, inspection and safety, business licensing, special event permitting, and pre-development consultation assistance.

One-Stop Shop

The City of El Paso’s One Stop Shop is designed to better serve the public with their licensing and permitting needs by consolidating land development, licensing, and permitting assistance into a single location.

The One Stop Shop is the primary intake point for land development, building permits, and most business licenses. It also serves as a primary payment location for all building and over-the-counter construction permits, as well as most other City applications and licenses.

Representatives from the Planning and Inspection Department, as well as other City departments involved in the development and licensing process, are available at our information counters to answer questions and offer guidance and assistance during the design, review, and inspection phases of the development process.
