To log in as “Contractor,” you must have an active license with current insurance certificates to submit a permit online.

Contractors with multiple licenses will see multiple listings for their company name with a letter designating the license type following the name. For example, "ABC Contracting - R" is the name to choose if you are ABC Contracting and the the permit is for a roofing job. License designations are as follows:

A= A1, A2, etc.
B = B1, B2, etc.
C = C1, C2, etc.
E = Electrician
P = Plumber
R = Roofing
S = Siding

Click on the PERMIT Type drop down for a list of active or unfinished permit applications for the account.

Select the appropriate PERMIT Type for the job and job site. PERMIT Types are coded to correspond with the county where the job site is located:
  • A = Arapahoe County
  • J = Jefferson County
  • D = Douglas County
In this example, APLUMBING has been chosen, meaning this will be a permit for a plumbing job in Arapahoe County.
6The items that appear under Type are automatically determined by the PERMIT Types selected in the last step.
7Scroll down to Location, enter part of the job address and click the Search button.

Only addresses that are inside the Littleton city limits AND in the county selected in Step 5 will appear in the address list. (In this case, it is Arapahoe County because the selected PERMIT Type is "APlumbing.")

If the address is not listed, then:
  • It is in another county (go back and select the appropriate PERMIT Type in Step 5); OR
  • It is an historical property and a permit cannot be issued online; OR
  • It is not in the Littleton city limits.
Select the correct address then click the Next Step button.
