How long does it take to get a permit?

This depends on the complexity of the project. Simple projects can often issue right away if all documentation is provided upon application. For larger, more complex projects, such as new homes and additions, we try to do they initial review within 30 days of the application date. If the review reveals that plans and documents need additional information, the applicant is notified of the deficiencies and usually it is up to the designer(s) to make the corrections. If all corrections are made, permits often issue within one or two weeks of the re-submittal.
