Subject: Request: Building Permit Records


To whom it may concern,

My name is Janine Rugas and I’m contacting you on behalf of BuildZoom to request a copy of your building permit records for Biddeford City,Maine .

Can you please provide us with a report of all building permits processed by your department since Apr 1, 2023 to present?

BuildZoom analyzes permit data to identify real estate patterns and trends. We integrate building permit data with information from other public sources to provide a localized understanding of historical, current, and future development activity for government forecasts and university research. We also provide free data to homeowners in your area to help connect them to qualified contractors.

Please include any fields that your permitting system tracks. This includes but is not
 limited to:
 o Permit Number
 o Applied/Issued Dates
 o Work Address
 o Permit Type
 o Permit Status
 o Description of the work being done
 o Contractor and Architect Details
 o Job Valuations

The preferred file type is a searchable PDF.

We greatly appreciate your help and thank you in advance for your assistance!

Hello Janine,

Our Code Enforcement Department automatically posts reports of issued building permits to our website at the end of each month. The link to these reports is and our list of April permits is accessible there at this time. Is this something that you would be able to follow along with in the future to keep track of the information you need? I know we receive these requests from you frequently and thought it might be easier for both you and our staff if I sent you this link.
