Permits are not issued the same day that they are submitted. Permits are reviewed by the Building and Safety Division staff in the order in which they are received. However, the permit process can be naturally expeditious if all required information is submitted accurately and completely from the start. Generally, the process takes 7 to 10 business days.
Since the application process varies depending on the type of development proposed, we encourage applicants to speak to our staff before applying for any permits. Applicants may request for a preliminary plan review. Preliminary plan reviews provide answers to all of your questions and concerns regarding the proposed project.
