We have received many questions regarding the level of service that the City of Goodyear is providing during this difficult time.

In order to best serve our customers, the Development Counter is now open to the public in a limited capacity. We are currently assisting ONLY the following services:

  • Drop off of paper plans for projects currently in review
  • Pick-up of paper plans for projects currently in review
  • Drop-off of payments for existing projects

Any customers wanting to speak with staff, should continue to contact them via phone or email.  Once payment has been made, all documentation will be uploaded into our Electronic Plan Review System, and you will be notified to download your permit.

If the project was approved on paper, request for payment will be emailed to the contact listed. Permits will be emailed after payment is received.

In addition, we are limiting the number of customers to no more than 5 at a time. In the event we have reached capacity, the doors will be locked until other customers have left.

The development counter can be contacted at 623-932-3004, Option 2. Any questions related to the new Electronic Plan Review system should be sent to

If you are closing your office, delaying your projects or if you have specific deadlines that need to be met, please communicate with us so that we can work to best accommodate your needs.

By working together we will continue to provide service, meet the needs of your business and the community. Please be safe.
