Make the Permitting Process Easier for You!

Saint Petersburg, FL  33713 Map

When citizens start a business or home improvement project, they're confronted with complex requirements from the City: multiple permits from different departments, each with its own terminology and procedures. Tradespeople and permit expeditors know how to navigate these processes, but non-professionals are often left behind. Their lack of experience can lead to delays and missteps, and even penalties and fines. OpenCounter uses a sophisticated rules engine to calculate permit requirements, fees, and timelines as applicants fill in their project details. This helps applicants to start their projects with more confidence, and helps staff to improve efficiency at the counter.

Come and learn more and make your next project easier!

Thanks to METRO Health, Wellness & Community for the space for this workshop! This event is open to all and provided by the Grand Central District Association.
