Permitting with the Town of Monument

                                 SUBMIT A PERMIT

Please note that all Monument construction permits will still go through Monument and PPRBD. Any "minor" permits such as electrical, would only go through PPRBD. Any work done within the Town border would still also need a Town of Monument business license.

                                                            DIGITAL PERMITTING SOFTWARE


The Town of Monument is excited to announce that we will be going digital with our planning permits
starting on FEBRUARY 1, 2021 by adding new permitting software.  The new software, called Cascade, will bring many new advantages to the permitting process such as a new online portal that will allow electronic submittals for the public and contractors, real time progress tracking for permits, online fee payments, access to all departments that have a role in the permitting process, customized reporting tools, as well as many more features that will enhance productivity and transparency.  The Monument and Cascade team are working hard to ensure a smooth transition and need you to use the link below to sign into the software and set up your company and users for the software. You will need to complete your account sign up prior to submitting a Monument permit for review.

                                                                  Overview of Cascade software features

The primary function of Cascade is to streamline the permitting process for town planning and zoning permits.  Applicants will now be able to easily apply online for all Land use and Development permits.  Cascade also provides the following features…

- Mapping features to show Town data
- Scheduling and tracking inspections
- Online access for contractors and public users
- Access for planning, public works, finance, administrators, fire department and other town or 3rd party users
- Creates reports for 3rd Party payment import into Caselle
- Customized Reports for any data that exists in the system
- Email notifications sent to users and contractors
- Easily track and monitor progress of permits through the workflow steps
- Upload and manage documents and plans
- Address and parcel database management – Property file abilities
- Importing of historical data to be used in reports and searches
- Online payments for contractors and public users
- Credit Card and ACH payments for permit fees
- And many others


Cascade provides the needed tools to help towns and cities track building and construction permits and has improved their software service tremendously based on the needs of clients. For example, when a city has an environment where all inspections, fees and processes are kept and tracked in different mediums for the permitting process, it is extremely cumbersome to try to process hundreds of new permits a year using this process and ensure accuracy. Once implemented, everyone has access to any piece of information that they need and transparency to board members and administrators is improved.
Please note that throughout the first months of a new software deployment, there are typically items that need to be adjusted.  Many times, a new workflow step has to be added or a dropdown box needs to be reconfigured.  Once the user starts to process permits and see how the software works they typically have ideas of how it can work better or maybe information that they were collecting is no longer needed.  Cascade can come through and make these changes easily to ensure that the software performs the way that staff and the public expects.
