Village of Niles offers an entirely electronic permitting process, known as the Citizen Self Service (CSS). CSS is faster than the paper-based process to a building permit application online you may do so by using the links below.
You will need to establish a CSS account with the Village and create a login and password. Once the account is created, you will be able to review the status of all of your permit applications, plan reviews, and inspections in real-time. By submitting your documents electronically you avoid the travel time required to conduct your business in-person with the Village.
Although the Department of Community Development still accepts paper applications, all are encouraged to use CSS to apply for and track the status of permits and inspections.
