Port of Los Angeles Unveils New Online Permitting Portal

The Port of Los Angeles wants to make its permitting process easier with a new online portal, permits.portoflosangeles.org.

Last year, the port started developing a way to handle permits online. The new portal is in line with Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Aug. 7 Executive Directive for Contactless Government asking all city departments to offer their services digitally.

The port as the Los Angeles Harbor Department oversees the Harbor District for the city and state under the State Tidelands Trust. The public needs permission from the port for various activities, including “leasing, construction, repairs, demolition, environmental testing, operating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and hosting events on port property,” according to the port.
