City Land Use Building Permit Intake Counter to Close at 3 p.m. June 10-July 19 Completely Closed Week of July 22-26

The City of Santa Fe is working to overhaul its systems in an effort to make City Hall more efficient, user-friendly, and modern.  As part of these efforts the Building Intake Counter at the Land Use Department will be closing at 3 p.m. daily starting Monday, June 10 through July 19.  The closure will allow for essential software testing and result in better service for our residents. 

Over the next few weeks and months the City will be implementing and rolling out several steps in final preparations for our pending implementation of EnerGov, our new Land Use permitting system, in order to replace older and outdated systems.  EnerGov will electronically manage permits and permit applications, integrate geographic information systems (GIS) data visualization and create increased transparency for residents.  We are asking everyone to be patient in the following weeks, as we anticipate some disruptions with the systems.

The transitions to this system will be instrumental in creating a more modern and user-friendly government. 

“While we are excited to implement this new system, it will be a big change and we anticipate it will be a trying few weeks or even months.  We ask for your patience as we navigate these changes and look forward to modernizing the way we do business,” said Erik Litzenberg, City Manager.

In order to prepare for the implementation of this system, we have started and will continue essential internal trainings. 


Dates To Remember


June 10 - July 19 – Building Permit Intake Counter closes at 3pm.
