How long does the permit process take?

From the time you drop off your completed permit application, the process time is usually four weeks during the heavy building season from March through October. It is a great idea to bring plans in during the slower months of December, January and February so that you can begin your project when you are ready in the spring. Remember, incomplete applications take longer.

Additional reviews of changed/incomplete plans can be charged a deferred submittal fee in addition to the regular permit fee. Getting incomplete plans in quickly will not expedite issuance of the permit.
