Commercial & Residential Application Center


Welcome to the Application Center, this central location provides a link to all permits and applications that may be required by the City of Blue Springs.

​We are pleased to announce our new online permitting tool, the Citizens Self Service (CSS) Portal.  This new tool allows us to accept select permits, applications, and payments online.  Before you can submit applications online, you must create a new account and be approved by staff.  If you previously had an account with the Citizen Access Portal (CAP), you will need to create a new account with CSS.  Citizen Self Service Portal customers will be responsible for service fees if paying by credit/debit cards.  Credit/debit card fees include 3.29% for online transactions and 2.99% for in-person fees.  You may also be responsible for any fees associated with your credit or bank accounts.  There will be a $20 service fee for all returned items.
