How long does it take to get a building permit?
Once a permit application and complete plan set is submitted, it enters a review process involving the City’s Planning, Neighborhood Services and Public Works departments. Commercial permits are also reviewed by the Fire Marshal. Residential permits are usually reviewed in one to two weeks. Commercial permits are usually reviewed in about 10 business days. However, that that time may vary depending on the project’s complexity and the need for additional information during the review process.
