El Dorado County's TRAKiT System

Details about the New TRAKiT System

El Dorado County residents are now able to access a greater amount of current and historical land management data online, reducing the need to visit County offices in person. The permit process will also become much easier in the coming weeks, as an increased level of information and functionality related to permits will be made available online.

After more than a year of development and training, the County will go live with its "TRAKiT" system. When fully functional, TRAKiT will allow County residents to take the steps needed to obtain permits and provide documentation at their convenience from the location of their choice. Residents will still have the option to visit the County Planning and Building offices in Placerville or South Lake Tahoe for their permitting business if they would rather do so in person.

TRAKiT, which replaces a 25 year-old land management information system, will soon allow users to apply for permits, pay fees, schedule inspections and track the progress of their projects online. Four specific types of permits will be available within a few weeks after May 14th, which include:

  • Residential Electrical, including Service Panel, Subpanel, Alteration/Repair, Replace Service Panel, Replace Subpanel, Electric Vehicle Charging Station, Generator, Energy Storage System, Well, Temporary Service

  • Residential Mechanical, including Electrical HVAC, Gas HVAC, Duct, Furnace, Replace A/C coil and condenser, Wood fireplace/Stove, Gas Fireplace/Stove, Whole House Fan, Alteration/Repair

  • Residential Plumbing, including LP tank set, Replace Piping, Alteration/Repair, Water Heater Electric, Water Heater Gas, Solar Thermal, Water Tank

  • Residential Re-Roof
