The Village of Riverside requires a building permit prior to work beginning for most building and construction projects, including alterations, repairs, and mechanical replacements.
New permit applications and contractor licenses must be applied for online.
To apply, the user must create an account for BS&A Online or login with an existing account. Online portal users are able to track project progress, schedule inspections, submit documents, and review property details.
The applicant will get a status update at each step in the process. The first update will tell the applicant that their application has been successfully submitted. The permit is not approved for issuance until the intake/plan review/issuance steps are complete and the permit invoice is paid. When all reviews are complete, the user will receive an email stating the permit review step is finished. When the permit is ready to pick up, the user will receive an email with a link to pay the fee.
To start a permit application, create a user account for BS&A or login with an existing account here.
