In accordance with our Mayor's March 17 announcement, PDSD offices are closed to the public indefinitely.

But we are still doing business.

We are transitioning to a digital format to continue providing service.

For trending topics, service adjustments, and temporarily suspended services, please see below.

Visit our Virtual Walk-Thru page for instructions on how to schedule and what to expect.
