The City of Statesville is partnering with Iredell County in offering the public a new online permitting system that will simplify development services countywide. The program, “Citizen Self-Service” (CSS), is accessible from any computer or device and allows the public to upload site plans and construction documents, complete and submit necessary permit applications, manage inspection requests and make payments all online without having to come to an office.
Zoning permits must be submitted on Energov, the County's Citizen Self Service portal.
What information is needed to submit an application for a single family dwelling?

What is the procedure for obtaining building permits and zoning clearances?

What inspections are required by the City of Statesville?
Whenever a commercial establishment needs a CO inspection from the county building inspections department, there must first be a Zoning Final Inspection for parking lot, landscaping and signage requirements. ABC permits must first have a site visit for compliance with signage, junk vehicles, trash & debris and parking. Zoning certification letters must have site visits for the same purpose.
