Buidling and Fire Safety

Community Connect, which is the new online portal for Macon-Bibb County, allows us to accept permit applications and issue permits. A Contractors Account within Community Connect will allow you to: submit electronic versions of plans for review, receive approved plans back that can be printed for the jobsites, receive permits, schedule inspections, check the status of your project through the process and receive inspection comments by email and online immediately after the inspection.

To ensure that permits are issued solely to the license holder, the contractor’s account must be set up by the license holder. The license holder can direct staff within their business to manage the account and apply for permits. Other members of your team can apply for Community Member Accounts, which will allow for application submittals and other minor functions but will not be able to issue them permits. This is meant to protect your contractor’s license and to avoid potential abuse.

To request a Community Connect Contractors Account, please contact our office by emailing the following information:

  • Copy of your current Business License
  • Business owner’s name, as it appears on the license
  • Business and mailing address
  • Business phone number
  • Ga Professional License type and Ga Professional License number
  • Licensed cardholder’s email address
