After many months of configuration and testing, Kent is ready to open its on-line permitting portal to home builder customers. The system, known as Amanda, is currently limited to receiving, processing and issuing only new single-family home permits, Kent staff is working diligently to open it up for additional work types. The city expects these to steadily increase over the coming months. Please use the link below and instructions for accessing the system:

While the system is reasonably intuitive, the Citizen Portal Training document walks users step-by-step through the process of creating a Citizen Portal account and submitting applications in the new Amanda system.  If users encounter issues or have questions, contact Leja McElroy at or Barbara Napier at and they are ready to assist.
