City launches Austin Code & Permit Tracker

Friday, August 26, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

The Austin Code Department and private company Civic Insight have partnered to develop an online search tool that can be used to retrieve information about code violations and building permits. Called the Austin Code & Permit Tracker, the tool – which is actually an updated version of the city’s Code Case Tracker – is available here. According to an announcement from the city, “Users can enter an address in the search bar or zoom in on the site map to view results by activity, time period, and neighborhood or council district. Users can also create an account to save searches and request e-mail updates for selected properties. The tool also includes an analytics feature that displays the permit and code violations issued daily and weekly for a specific address or area within a given timeframe.”
