PERMIT APPLICATION REVIEW
Permit & Plan Review Status
After an application has been submitted, the Department of Planning and Community Development reviews the request. Some permits can be issued the same day; however, permits requiring a submittal of drawings typically go through a review process and the permit will be issued later after approval. The applicant can check the plan review status online (link below).
