Building Permit and Development Review System, eTRAKiT
On October 19, 2021, the Littleton City Council approved an ordinance adopting the Unified Land Use Code (ULUC). It becomes effective October 28, 2021.
- NOTE: Under the pending ordinance doctrine the City is not accepting applications for non-primary rentals at this time. See the STR page for more information.
In 2020, the city rolled out a huge new upgrade to its Building Permit and Development Review System, eTRAKiT, implementing new processes to make it easier for applicants and contractors.
With eTRAKiT, the homeowner, developer and contractor may apply and pay for some permits online, submit development applications electronically, request a pre-application meeting, track the progress of their construction projects online, schedule and locate the results of inspections, check plan review status, and view the anticipated date when a permit will be issued. Zoning verification letters may also be requested through the eTRAKiT portal.
Licensed contractors may also log in and view their previous permits using the password found on their Littleton contractor's license. Archived permits may be requested by using the Open Records Request Form. The completed form must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office.
Now available in eTRAKiT: Business & Sales/Use Tax License Application, Short-Term Rental License Application, Special Event Permit License Application, Phase II Building Permits and Development Applications
COMING SOON: ULUC Development Applications
Applicants must confirm that the property address is within the city limits prior to submitting an application.
