How long does it take to get a building permit?

Issuance of a Building Permit is contingent on the complexity of a project. Some projects may obtain permits over-the-counter while other projects will be routed to the City’s designated plan-check consultant. On average, first review of plans will take two to three weeks. The City will contact and coordinate with an applicant or representative on the availability of plans following the initial plan check process. It is then the responsibility of the applicant or designee to address all corrections prior to resubmitting for re-check with the City which will take an additional two to three weeks, after resubmittal.

Please note, these timelines may be expanded or shortened depending on the complexity of a project.
