The City of Buffalo is now partnering with Citizenserve to provide comprehensive community development e-government application, processing and payment solutions for building permits, planning and zoning.
Through the Citizenserve portal you have access to all of our online services including building and zoning permits, and land use applications.To access the portal click on the Citizenserve button above.
Online payments will not be accepted until late February or early March.
Starting January 1, 2023 the City of Buffalo will be charging a credit card convenience fee on our permits and licenses. That fee is 2.75%, with a minimum charge of $2.95. Once we have our on-line payment portal up in Citizenserve, you may choose to pay with an e-check which has no fee.
