How do I use a mobile device to submit via portal?


Load a document repository app on your phone/iPad, One Drive or Dropbox are two options. iPhone and Dropbox will be used for this instruction sheet.

Place your completed application documents in that repository. A list of necessary documents for application types can be found on the Village Website Document Center. Remember to keep your files separate so you can upload to specific line items i.e.: Application, Property Record Card, Signed/Sealed Plans, etc.

Access the CityView Portal,, at the top/right corner you will see three horizontal lines, click on that dropdown, and select “Sign In”. If you do not have a portal account, you will need to create one. There is an FAQ (click this link to access instruction list) to assist you with that. Once you have created and activated your portal account, click the Sign In link, input your Username and Password, and Log In.

Input the Location of the Work Being Done. If the location you registered your portal account with is the same as the job site, check the “Use my location” box. If the job site is elsewhere, use the “Search for an address”. This auto-suggest box will search for the address as you type. Once the appropriate address is found, click on it and it will display in the location selected box. Click “Next”.

The property Owner and Applicant (whomever is logged in and submitting the application) will auto-populate. Should you need to add Contractors, Agents, etc. you can use the “Search the address book” button and select your Contact Type and “Search” for the Person/Contractor. Once you find the person, click “Add this Contact”. Repeat this process to add additional contacts. REMEMBER: if adding Sub Contractors or Agents, you will need to upload the appropriate Sign-On Letter under the “Upload Additional Documents” section in the next step. Click “Next”.
